Firefox 98 always saving files even with setting set to "Always Ask"
When I download a file from a website I like to have the option of opening and viewing a file before actually saving it. I updated to Firebox 98, and I've specified in the settings to "Always Ask" for almost all file types. Now I do get the popup giving me the option to either open a file using a specified application or to save the file, but when I tell it to open the file, it both opens it AND saves it to my download folder. In previous versions when I opened a file, Firefox just opened the file without immediately saving it. I could then save it if I wanted to from the application.
Is there a way I can restore this behavior in Firefox 98?

You could try setting the following preference to false in about:config but it's only a temporary fix (if it helps at all). browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370494 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/about-config-editor-firefox
