To disable Firefox from opening a file automatically once it's been downloaded, you need to go to Firefox > Options (or Edit / Preferences) and click on Applications tab. There, find the extension or MIME type for the file you don't want to automatically play and choose "Always ask" as action, so you are given the option to choose.
