    not sure if this functionality is even possible but i was wondering if it possible to get .mp3 files to automatically download to the music folder from safari. i see the option to change the folder into which all files download into but i want to just change it for .mp3 files

    You can't define the downloads folder based on file type.

    You CAN use Folder Actions to automatically route MP3 files to your Music folder, from your Downloads folder, though. This requires nothing more than Automator (or some AppleScriptery, if that fails).

    You can also buy Hazel, and let it move stuff around. It lets you define rules to handle all sorts of things, and for me, is easier than folder actions.
