Can I download a file (to a folder I choose, not a temp) AND open it simultaneously?
I'm trying to save a PDF file to a folder of my choosing, while also having it open in a PDF annotator program that I'm using. Basically, I'm trying to bypass having to save the file first, then opening it in a program. I want to be able to open it in the program, but ALSO save it to my desktop (not a temp folder) at the same time. Changing the default location for temp files doesn't work because then I get everything. I just want specific files. Any thoughts?

Firefox doesn't have a built-in way to do that. I think the shortest workflow in Firefox is:
(1) Save to Desktop (or wheverever)
(2) Click the downloads arrow, then click the download to launch it in your default PDF handler
Extensions -- unless they coordinate with a companion program -- can't save files outside the Downloads folder (or maybe it's outside your selected downloads folder?).
This is quite indirect, but if you know someone who knows a Windows scripting language, maybe it would work. Create a script that you can select in the Download dialog through "Open" (in place of your PDF program) that does this:
(A) Receives the path to the file from Firefox (B) Moves the file to your preferred folder (C) Then launches the file in your preferred application
