How to disable firefox asking if I really want to launch .msi file?
Every time I download *.msi file and try to launch it through firefox last downloads menu (or library window) firefox warns me that this is executable file and asks do I really want to launch this. This is really annoying.
How to disable this warning?
P.S. I do not want to use about:preferences#privacy to disable warning me about insecure downloads! I want to only remove this stupid warning before launching legitimate .msi files just because they are .msi files. I still want firefox to scan all downloads.

Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:65.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/65.0
Go to about:config and set browser.download.manager.alertOnEXEOpen = false.
Unfortunately it did not help. I had it on disabled earlier. I have no warning on exe files, only on msi files. This is something new, silently added in firefox 65.
OK, I've found it in the source code.
Add the following pref: browser.download.skipConfirmLaunchExecutable = true

I created string and set it to true and it did not work. Now I cannot create boolean because it only changes what string says.
- Right-click on the pref and select Resetuj.
- Restart the browser.
- Try again to create a boolean preference.
Thanks! That solved the problem, string disappeared after resetting it. Now I created boolean and message is not popping up on msi files!
