This feature was great, and one of the reasons why I stayed with Firefox when I tried it. From stopping accidental downloads to avoiding malware, being able to choose to keep a download instead of automatically putting it on my device was really helpful, so I suggest adding a toggle(alongside the options for individual files) to choose between asking for all files or auto-downloading. I'd greatly appreciate this change.

Could there be a little more explanation in the alert box how Firefox has detected malware in a file? I got the alert when downloading the documentation for Kali Linux from their gitlab site, and there is nothing in the file tree but markdown, plaintext, and {png,jpg,gif} image files

Thank you very much FF team. This issue was so annoying.

Stop auto-saving file.

When browsing through the web I occasionally need to open and view PDF file from various sites which I DON'T want them in my Download folder.

To make things worse, for the files that I wanted to view first and then save later, I now need to delete it from the Download folder after saving.

I thought I was doing something wrong and encounter a bug until I find that it was intentionally changed in release note 98.0. It is VERY annoying and unnecessary.

Hi @Yu_C

This was fixed and included in our Fx101 release. Let us know if that's not working on your end.

Admin Jon says this was fixed, but it is not. I have updated to 101.0.1 (64-bit) and everything still autosaves despite me trying to just open to view. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

I agree the new version has not fixed the problem. It still auto saves to what ever folder you choose. It's becoming very annoying!
