How to prevent 'opened files' (temporary files) saved in the Downloads folder

The latest version of Firefox is giving me a nightmare. Previously, when I downloaded something, an alert would automatically pop-up asking me whether I want to save the file or just open it. For those files which I only want to open them once, I would click Open. Then, I would either save the file into another format or copy the content to somewhere else and be done with it. Those 'Opened' file were just temp files which would be deleted automatically after some time. But since the previous update of Firefox, the option to 'open downloaded files as temp files' seems to have been completely gone. I've already manually change the settings for all types of files back to 'Always ask' but the files I 'opened once' are no longer just temp files but permanently saved in the Downloads folder. I personally seldom save things in C drive. Today I occasionally opened the Downloads folder and was astonished to see that all the 'temp files' I opened last month are all saved in there. It's very annoying. Why should I even be wasting my time to clear these temp files manually? The only reason I've been using Firefox over Chrome for these many years is because Chrome always forces me to save all the downloaded files to my local drive and doesn't provide me the option to open them as temp files. If Firefox has become just like Chrome, forcing me to save all unwanted files to my local drive, what's the point for me to continue using Firefox?

A few weeks ago, Firefox stopped working on my machine. When I tried to launch it I got an error message "Firefox has stopped working". I tried a reinstall and a clean reinstall but both installation procedures fail with the same error.

I'm running Windows 10 64-bit. I am installing with administrative permissions.

There are two files in AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Crash Reports from the two days that I tried reinstalling. I'm not sure what to do with them.

I have been using 64 for quite some time. Just downloaded the new version. All of my bookmarks are gone. When I go to the old 64 just a spinning icon and each tab is completely blank. I'd really like to continue using firefox. Running a business, I have not choice at this point.... had to migrate all tabs to Safari so I can work.

Any ideas? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

        no more Firefox since yesterday :-(
        
        Strange Problem. Suddenly no link functioned (Sound "pupup") Firefox freezes :-( Close and ... Firefox 
        didn't start :-( Boot ... same reaction!
        
        Saving Firefox-Profile and deinstall/install with newest install from Mozilla! And what happened?
        
        Install creates "c:\program files\mozilla firefox", ignoring my system 64-bit!? No profile under 
       "c:\users\&user\appdata\roaming\mozilla"! Icon on desktop.
        
        How can I install Firefox again? Installing without virusscanner and firewall, all tested!
        
        In the moment on the way with Chrome ...
        
        All the best from Dortmund and stay healthy!

I am a computer user. Don't try to be able to be a power user, as I have better things to do with my time. I downloaded Firefox to be able to take some FEMA courses required for my Search and Rescue volunteering. I download it and installed. Launch the program and followed instructions to set up an account. OK that seemed a bit much for a free browser but I assumed like all internet based companies it was a data collection exercise that would test my dedication to blocking all email spam.

After the account set-up, I was met with the concept that I needed a browser on a second machine to be linked to the account. Some lame excuse that you couldn't sync with only on computer with the browser. Funny thing why would you want to sync if you only had one machine with the browser. Have a simple backup system would take care of any of that. Oh well I was stuck because the browser would not function and I followed through with downloading the program onto my iPhone and scanning the code. It seemed to work. The only acknowledgments is a continuing barrage of emails telling me "someone is trying to log into my account." Yea that's me because I got asked a second time to set-up this bloody link. Some something is not working.

I would just delete everything (account and Firefox) but I am scared that my email address will be tarred and feathered and not allowed to be used again ever!!

Help please. What I hoped to be a quiet morning completing 2 need courses has ended up costs me hours of frustration.

Thanks

Mike

Is there a way I can detect a pending update and restart firefox? I'm on MacOS. We're updating browsers in an enterprise environment and we allow automatic update but the user doesn't restart the browser to complete the update. If there's a way to detect this I can prompt the user myself. Unless there's a policy I can enforce that would work better.
