Hi,

I deployed the last Firefox ESR update and I just found about this new feature : https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/manage-downloads-preferences-using-downloads-menu

So files are now downloaded and users are no longer prompted for what to do. My question is can we change this to "Ask whether to open or save files" using policies.json?

Kind regards,

McB

The preferences is: browser.download.always_ask_before_handling_new_types You can set browser. prefs via policies.json. See Preferences:
