Hi DBHGuard, what kind of files have this problem?

Firefox has a list of unsafe file extensions for executable files (for example, .EXE). Firefox will never show an Open or Run option for files with those extensions. However, for other files, you should get an Open or Save option. You usually can set one of those as the default.
