when i click on a zip file to save it, it opens the file like an URL, is there a way to change it?

Chosen solution

Try changing the download actions for "Compressed (Zipped) folders" as shown in the Change what Firefox does when you click on or download a file article. Try changing it to either "Save file" or "Always ask".
