save link as option doesn't work as expected anymore

Posted

When I formerly right clicked a link to a file (to download) and chose the option Save link as, I was able to save the file to the location I specified.

At the moment this doesn't work anymore. When I click the same link as before and choose save link as, firefox wants to save the .htm page instead of the .csv file.
