I have Mac OS Sierra 10.12.5 (16F73) running firefox 53.0.3 (64-bit). I want to be able to open a file without saving it on to my ~/Downloads folder. On Windows, when you choose to open a file instead of saving it, it opens the file and keeps it on a temporary folder until you chose to either discard it or make changes to it and save it somewhere else, like in your Documents folder.

What is the value of this pref if you check this on the about:config page?

  • browser.helperApps.deleteTempFileOnExit

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I'll be careful" to continue.
