In the past week or so something seems to have changed with Firefox whereby any time I go to open a file Firefox is first saving the file to the Downloads folder on my computer before opening. This never used to happen before as I was always given the option to just open the file or save it.

I have tried adjusting the settings and I have got Firefox to ask about opening the files, but it is still saving them to the Downloads folder automatically.

Can someone help with what changed and how I can revert it back to the how it performed a few weeks ago?

A temporary workaround is posted in the thread linked below. I have also posted a link to the relevant release notes.
