How can I configure Firefox to prompt me to open or save a PDF file when I click on one instead of just opening it in Acrobat?

There is a registry key that can be edited to have IE do this. Is there a way to have Firefox pop up a dialog box asking what I want to do with the PDF file? Here is the IE registry key: [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AcroExch.Document.7]
