downloaded new version of Java but doubled clicked on it and it will not install, message says i need to open it with an application and wants me to choose one.

firefox disabled my version of java, i went to the free download site to get the newest version, clicked on download then doubled click on it in the download list, this should have started the intallation but instead i got a message saying i needed an application to open the link and wanted me to choose an app. Install box did not come up as it has with other downloads. I do not want to open it i want to install it.
