Open correct program on download with FF on Linux

I'm using FF on Linux FC 30. If I download a file, let's say it's an RPM file it gives I get a dialog that says "You have chosen to open: Someprogram-1.2.3.rpm. What should Firefox do with this file Open with Apper Installer (default)"

If I click OK, nothing seems to happen. The "Apper" program does not open. Similarly, if I download a PDF, a PDF viewer does not open either. I'm not sure why it offers to open with that if it does not actually do it."

Instead, I have to click on the Downloads arrow, open the containing folder, right click on the file in a file explorer and have it open that application. Or, find wherever FF decided to put the file, currently FF favors /tmp/mozilla_my_id_0 and execute the program in a terminal.

I'd like to have FF actually do what it offered to do. I like to have it ask first. That part is good. But I want it to actually run the program. Apper exists on my system, and I have PDF viewers as well.

Secondly, I want to have FF download files in the normal Downloads folder and not some place off /tmp.

How can both things be fixed?

Thanks, Ben

too many websites (as well as mozilla/firefox) were asking me to download a newer version of firefox on my macbook pro running safari. I downloaded the most recent Firefox version and keep getting an 'update now' message from mozilla/firefox and now I've got like 5 new installs of firefox (today) that apparently aren't the newest?

My Firefox is currently on version 69.0. I am trying to update it by going to Firefox -> About Firefox. When I click about Firefox, the window opens displaying my current version. From the articles about updates I read, it should start automatically updating, but nothing happens. I click the "Restart to Update Firefox" button, and my Firefox session is restarted but I am still on version 69.0. I do not see any other way online to go about updating Firefox other than this route, so I am not sure what to do. Any thoughts? Thank you!

As with others I can't find my old profile. I renamed it long ago as my primary profile and have updated firefox many times since. On Sat 8/14 I updated Sahara and my profile won't reload, instead I'm getting a window claiming the profile is too old. I've been through and through the FAQs and am not enough of a successful user to get to the right folder to find a usable profile with my data still in tact. about:profiles, where I usually go now had 43 profiles in it including my previously renamed profile but that doesn't help. I refreshed ff without success. I tried to find help in the many profiles help pages that said click on this, copy this, click on the profile tab, go up one level and turn left and you lost me. Can anybody help me find my usable profile and simply explain how do I re-initiate it? Thanks.
