Quicken downloads suddenly saving instead of opening

Until the last upgrade a few days ago, when I went to download Quicken data from my bank (on Firefox at the bank's website, NOT inside the Quicken program), I was given the option of saving or opening the .qfx file. Now, since the upgrade, it goes straight to a file I have to save and then click on.

I have tried adding Quicken files to the Applications settings in the Firefox settings, but it won't recognize anything when I put "Quicken" or ".qfx" in the search box. I have no idea how to fix this.

  • Firefox no longer asks what to do for each file by default
  • Downloads panel automatically opens
  • Downloaded files are saved to disk
  • Set a default app to open a file type
  • "Always Open Similar Files" option from the Downloads panel
  • Frequently asked questions


You can set this pref to false on the about:config page to prevent opening the download panel on each download.

  • browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

Thank you everyone. Looks like this is the new standard for Firefox, and it's frankly over my head to change the settings as instructed by some (I tried). I'll just adapt, but I appreciate everyone responding.
