Any file type in particular?

You would have better luck looking for plugins for the specific file type for a specific browser.

If you are collecting a particular file type through browsing though, maybe you should consider looking for a crawler instead. Might work better.

I just want my MP3 files to save in my media folder instead of the downloads folder.

Consider writing a simple batch file to execute manually or with a set timer to move *.mp3 from downloads to media folder.

E.g.:
Code:
move full-path-to-move-from\*.mp3 full-path-to-move-to

You create a batch file under the file name movemp3.bat.

movemp3.bat is just a text file. In it you type in:
Code:
move D:\Downloads\*.mp3 "C:\Users\Scyere\My Music"
Here I am assuming that your downloads path is: D:\Downloads

Whilst your media path is: C:\Users\Scyere\My Music

You might have to use quotation if you have space in your path name.

The batch file should execute when you run it, moving all MP3 files from D:\Downloads to C:\Users\Scyere\My Music.

Yes, just put them on different lines of the same batch file.
