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.

Strollin' around

@VenetiaThe implementation could have been more elegant.


It could even serve as an easy way to use an external download tool.

This has been changed, but it isn't fixed.

When you choose to open a document from the web, it still automatically saves it to your selected download folder. 

If I'm choosing to open a file, I don't want it permanently saved in a location I have to manually clean out.  This isn't any better than it was.
