I accidentally set my Downloads to automatically open the files, and now it doesn't save them at all, except in my temporary files. How do I reset the Automatic Download setting?

I remember back in Firefox 3.6 you could go into about:config and reset the automatic setting for downloads, but that particular option has either been renamed or isn't there anymore.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Go to the Firefox/Tools menu, click on Options and go to the Applications panel where you can change the action for different content types, to "Save File" or "Always ask" instead of opening the file in a particular application or plugin. See Change what Firefox does when you click on or download a file.
