Left click an .exe file to download no longer gives the proper dialog box and you are not prompted by the file-picker on where to save the file if you have the option set 'Ask me where to save...'

Marking this WFM with a new profile.  There is still an issue with downloading .exe files using the 'open' option, will file a bug for that issue.
