    I must have clicked on something somewhere to change things and can't figure out what I did.

    System Info:

    OS X 10.5.7
    MacBook Pro 4.1
    Firefox 3.0.10
    App: Download Status Bar

    Before screwing things up, when I clicked on a file to download, a pop-up box would appear asking me if I wanted to open the file and unzip it or save it.

    Now, when I click on a file to download, it automatically starts downloading and does not unzip it.

    Does anyone know what I screwed up?

    Firefox > Preferences > Main > then play with the downloads tick box to see if that fixes it

    Or, if that doesn't work

    Firefox > Preferences > Applications and see what you've told Firefox to do with certain file extensions
