Hello,

Clicking on "pps" file url in Firefox. I don't get the standard dialog box:

----------------------------------------

What should Firefox do with this file?

[] Open with [application (default)]

[] Save to Disk

[] Do this automatically for files like this from now on.

Now when I click on an "pps" file url, the dialog box: 
enter the name of file to save to.......

How can I get the dialog box back so I can choose:
 
[] Open with [application (default)]


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Clicking on "pps" file url
2.I don't get the standard dialog box: What should Firefox do with this file?
3.

Actual Results:  
Now when I click on an "pps" file url, the dialog box: 
enter the name of file to save to.......


Expected Results:

[] Do this automatically for files like this from now on. 
when i click to download "pps"

You failed to provide an example URL.
Which mime-type does your server send for the file ?
submitted to early..
And you didn't select "save file" as action in the options for this file type ?

Hi matti, right is like from my emails whit attachment pps i click to open it and
whit out select "save file"
the dialog box: enter the name of file to save to...; pops up.
I hope i explained it good enough.
We need the headers that the server sends for the file (content-type) and you didn't answer the question if you selected in the Firefox options that one content-type should be saved instead of asking.
