Firefox downloads a file, even if I choose "Cancel".

If I click a link to a file (eg, PDF, DOC), a dialog box appears that asks me to either "Open with [some application]" or "Save File". This dialog has a "Cancel" or "OK" button. So if I choose cancel -- meaning that I do not want to download the file -- Firefox goes ahead and downloads it anyway. In fact, it seems to actually download the file as soon as I click the link, before I've even had a chance to click "Cancel" or "OK". This does not seem like the correct behavior to me. Is there a setting somewhere that can turn off this automatic downloading?

I'm using Firefox 20.0 on a Mac.
