is there a way to set my firefox so that certain file types downloaded are sent to specific locations? Ie. Jpegs to image folder, guitar pro tabs to my tux guitar directory... stuff like that?

I think there's not an easy way to accomplish this.

If it could be done, I guess it should be on purpose inputs in the preferences of firefox (accesed by typing "about:config" in the location bar). I myself just had a look there, filtering by "dowload", and saw no related items that suggest that it could be done. Only found the expected browser.download.lastDir and browser.download.useDownloadDir.

You might want to explore further in that direction though.
Cheers

EDIT: be careful when manually changing settings here!

It probably requires an addon. 'Download Sort' is one such but the reviews for that are a bit so so. There may be others.
