save as html default

Posted

Until last week, if I asked Firefox to save a page, the default was as html. Now all of a sudden it is txt! Useless, loses everything, and I keep forgetting to force it to html, How can I change the default to what it has always been? (And why in the world was it changed???) I'll go ahead and let the checker get the troubleshooting info, but don't see how that is likely to help. Bob Wilson
