Hi. Suddenly mid workflow I can only open a PP document by saving it. Usually I would go to SETTINGS - APPLICATIONS and switch out the preference to 'always ask' - however PP now doesn't appear in the menu. How can I add it so I can change the download setting? And why has it suddenly disappeared? I am using / downloading them all the time? Thanks in advance. Regards, Brigitte

Thanks terry21. I still can't see how to add PowerPoint to the Applications box in Settings (which, as mentioned, was previously there!)

See How file downloads are handled in Firefox version 98 and above.

When you download a PowerPoint file you should be able to set "Always Open Similar Files" from the right-click context menu: Fx98Downloads-FileContextMenu

This will create an Applications entry for that type of file in your Firefox settings.
