Firefox won't let me customize download action for rar files.

When I download a .rar file, Firefox does not show any option to "open with" it just asks if I want to save it or not. The option isn't even grayed out, it's just not even there. The only option is to click "OK". I would like to set it to open with rar expander automatically.

I have a mac.
