FF extension for changing Download Location?

Hi guys I'll post this in here because I don't think it really qualifies as a "problem" for Browsers and Mail.

Basically, I have recently got into Modding (The Sims 3 if your interested). and find myself downloading all sorts of stuff from all over the place for various things.

As you can imagine, with FF's default "Save everything to Downloads" policy, its getting to be a major organistational headache. Can anyone recommend a good extension that will allow me to choose the Save location when I download stuff? Like IE does by default.

Go to Firefox Tools Menu>Options
Change as in attachment i.e. Select "Always ask me where to save files"

hope this helps
