Why doesn't firefox ask me for download location?

more options

I checked "Always ask you where to save files" in the options page, and yet Firefox always downloads to the User->username_>Appdata->Local folder. How can I get it to stop doing that and ask me instead?

Update: It turns out that the problem only occurs with I need to open a .zip file. I choose the option to open with 7Zip Console. Instead of opening 7Zip Console (whatever that is), it simply downloads the file to the above location.
