Download a file would normally bring up an option to open the file with the appropriate program or save it - for some reason any now just downloading it straight to the download folder. Why? Problem with Firefox or something else? It is very frustrating - sometimes, you want the first opened file so it can be discarded or stored in a different location.

Find the type of file in the Firefox -> Options -> Applications Panel, open its menu drop-down and select 'ask '. To reset all the actions of download, delete the mimeTypes.rdf file in your Firefox profile folder (or rename the mimeTypes.rdf X if you want to save as a backup). The file will be regenerated with all types of files, restore the default actions.

For more information, see application Panel - set how Firefox handles different file types and change what Firefox does when you click on or download a file .
