Hi!

When I try to download a docx file, Firefox does not ask me whether I want to open the file with a specific program. I can only choose what folder I want to save the file to. I'm also supposed to be able to change how Firefox handles specific file types, but can't find docx files in that list.

If you need any more info to help me please feel free to ask!

You can right-click the item in the Downloads panel and choose "Always Open Similar Files" to make it open automatically. You can change the "Save" action to "Always Ask". If this isn't available then the server might be ending the as a generic content type.
