when downloading using firefox I must save the download and then must go to the download file to run the download. When I download using internet explorer I can run a download at the time it is downloaded. Can I change a setting somewhere ?

I am using Windows 7 with firefox as my default browser. When I download a program using firefox I am asked if I want to save the file and then must go to the download folder to run the download. When I download using internet explorer I am given the option to run the download at the time it is downloaded instead of saving the download. Is there a setting I can change to allow me to run downloads when using firefox instead of saving it?
