What kind of downloads are the files? Or did you use the "Save Page" feature to save a webpage?

Assuming they are saved web pages, do they open in a different browser, or in an editor?

To re-associate the pages with Firefox, you can try right-click > Open With (on XP, you might need to hold down the Shift key when right-clicking to get Open With, I can't remember).
