With version 98.0 the saving of .exe files won't ''ask me'' if i want to save the file like in previous versions.I read that the default saving attitude now is auto-saving. I have changed to ''always ask'' most of my content type like it was before, but the .exe type is missing. Please fix this on next version because a misclick - autosaving a .exe file can make things pretty bad. I have tried finding the ''Old Firefox'' folder in order to replace my old prefs.js but i guess newer versions have stopped using that folder.So please fix it.

The "download improvements" is not an improvement for everyone.

The probleme :

Changing behaviours of the software without optional test before, and without let an easy roll back solution for people who are completely ok with previous solution. I'm opening about 100 files a day and let them in my TEMP file is perfect for me. Having to save them manually each time make me lost about 30mn /  days...

The solution : set to false into about:config


But, anyway thanks for this -until this issue- absolute perfect internet browser. Thanks for your work.

After a past update, the option to download files to a temporary directory (that was automatically deleted after Firexfox closed) and just open them, disappeared.

Now it's only possible to choose the location where fils will be saved after download.

Would it be possible to re-install that good old feature?

I signed up here to specifically complain about this - please bring back the old default download/open window. The "download improvements" are not an improvement.

Did anyone actually ask for this change or was it done due to some conceptual purity argument?
