Firefox 98 no longer giving option to open or save file, just saves it to download folder which floods me with files
Firefox 98 no longer giving option to open or save file, it now just saves files to my Download folder, which I don't want. I use firefox for work, and I have to download literally hundreds of files, mainly generated excel spreadsheets, a day. The ability to have the option to just open the file from the temp folder that gets cleared when firefox closed was great. Now I have to fiddle with about:config to get back even a portion of what I was able to do before. currently i have browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel set to false, which helps, but there are just certain file types that ignore this setting, such as zip files and pdf files. Those still auto download to the Download folder, then I have to go hunt for them if I need to attach them to emails. It's a BAD feature. How do I revert it to do what it did pre ver 98?

Version 98 screwed up everything about file management
I have users that are now download the save file 20 times or more because FF doesn't ask what to do anymore it just blatantly saves to the download folder - When software developers muck with a users settings bad things will happen.
The developers need to learn ask for permissions before you screw me by changing my setting - I didn't want to change to Opera but WTF Mozilla
Another example - I used to be able to look at the contents of a zip file in windows explorer. If I only wanted 2 of the many files listed in the archive I could put a tick mark on both files and then drag them to my mozilla window and the files would get copied there - Well that no longer works. I must export all the files out my archive copy the two want to mozilla then delete everything I just Exported -_ NOT GOOD, LOST PRODUCTIVITY
