can't "run" firefox upgrade; instead, only "save" appears. What's up?
want to download newer version of firefox (also Microsoft Security Essentials-having same problem), but the run (execute) command doesn't appear. Instead, "save" (file) appears. What's wrong? I can detect no yellow information bar.

Firefox does not allow executable files to be run, they can only be saved. This is a security feature to prevent the spread of viruses. You can bypass this feature and have the option to run files by using the OpenDownload² extension - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/opendownload-10902/
