That link was to Firefox 55 and below. I followed the link to later versions, and it says "When you click on a link for a type of file that doesn't have a set content type and download action, Firefox will ask you how to handle the file". But for .bin files I get a hexdump, and .txt files a display in the window. I cannot get it to ask how to handle the file. I must have trouble reading:-)
I don't think it is a reading problem. Mozilla has dumbed-down the settings and config interface significantly over the past few version jumps to the point something that should be stupid-simple to configure is a frustrating PITA (like trying to set the clock font size in the KDE panel)
Is there a way to load an old version of Firefox? I guess I am simple, but I never felt the need for more than Netscape:-) Is there a way to get to older distribution trees, something like 3.1. I found a 42.2 dist with a Firefox 49.0.2-37. Do you see any problem installing this?
