Unable to "save as"

I am unable to "save as" on a left click of a file. I can right-click and choose "save link as" and it works fine, but simply clicking on it results in "save" without me being able to change the filename. I recently restored my computer and had it set previously to that setting, but I can't remember for the life of me how I did it. Any help much appreciated.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I left-click a file to download.
