Firefox 13.0.1 breaks option+click to download shortcut on snow leopard.

I recently upgraded to ff 13.0.1 on both my mbp laptop and mac mini, both running snow leopard 10.6.8, and the option+click keyboard/mouse shortcut is no longer functioning. The option key is def. functioning, as it works for other (non-firefox) purposes. This also occurs in ff safe mode, so it's presumably not an issue with a plug-in.

Chosen solution

hey dsmbgu8, this feature was disabled per default in firefox 13 - in order to switch it back on, enter about:config into the location bar, search for the preference named browser.altClickSave and toggle it to true by double-clicking it.

for reference see bug #713052
