In Firefox 3.6.16, for pdf files, I have a choice between using Preview or asking whether to save; what happened to the choice between Preview or save?

I am running Firefox 3.6.16 on a Mac Air (OS X 10.6.7). When given a url ending in .pdf, it used to be that Firefox would offer a choice between running Preview on the pdf file or saving the file. Now you can set your preferences so that either you run Preview, always save, or always ask whether to save. Apparently there is no way to get it to ask you whether you want to run Preview, save the file, or cancel. Is there some way to restore the old behavior?
