OK I see. Absolute position is forbidden by the browser web-extension API.

Important for those who don't use a root directory as the browser download 

As long as you stay inside the "browser downloads" directory "araa" a 
../twBackups as the "Backup directory" will work. 

BUT as soon as you "leave" the "area" you will see this message in the 
browser dev Console (F12): save-wiki error: Error: "filename must not 
contain back-references" 

I didn't think about this setting, that's why there is no user facing 
message atm. *So if the setting is wrong there is no warning _and_ NO 

I will create a bug-report at github for this.
