I must have accidentally turned on the "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" option, and now can't open videos straight from the web page. Instead I always get the Save As dialog box How do I turn that option off so Firefox always prompts me to open a video file or save it?

You can see if you can find that action in Tools > Options > Applications
