Keeps telling me my file does not have a program associated with it and go to folder options in the control pane. Where is it located

When I try to save a file the download window keeps coming up. When I click to open the erro message says "File does not have a program associated with it for performing this function. Create an association in the folder options control panel." Where is this control panel and what kind of association do I make. Usually it was adobe but I don't have that choice

Try using this link first https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-firefox-behavior-when-open-file?esab=a&s=File+does+not+h...

Also it could be the type of file you are downloading. Like if it was a type of text that your default word processor did not accept it would give you that message. Hope this helps, Jeremy Eramian
