There are a few firmware files I need to down load to get my wireless running. I thought in Firefox, if you clicked on a file, there was a way to select downloading. Now all I get is a dump in hexedit. Is there something to set up to restore this basic capability?
Right click, Save as
I am trying to get a response like that received when I click on rpm files etc. In Firefox Preferences/general/downloads there is a list of files under "Content Type" that ask if you wish to download them or not. I would like to add to that list, but see no mechanism.
This has nothing to do with *Downloading* files. The "Content Type" is for what to do when a file of the type mentioned in the list is selected by LEFT-clicking on it. For example, if you LEFT-click on a *.pdf file you can actually read it ONLINE using, say, Okular.
However, if you want to *download* a file -- even that *.pdf file -- then RIGHT-click on the file and from the drop-down menu select to *SAVE* the file -- and you should have already configured Firefox to save the/all file/s into your /home/Downloads/ directory.
