Question on downloading files

  • No replies

Some web browsers allow the user, when downloading a file, to run it directly from the hosting website instead of saving the file to my hard drive. For example, when I first set up this computer, I was able to "run" the Firefox setup program directly from Internet Explorer without being *ABSOLUTELY* forced to save it to my hard drive. Does Firefox allow this in any way, without *ABSOLUTELY* ramming the "save to your hard drive" down your throat every time?
