I am running FF 3.5.3 on Windows Vista. When I attempt to open an .xls file FF just downloads it w/o question. Although if I double-click the downloaded file in will automatically launch OpenOffice. Is there something I am missing?

Do you have a link to that file so I can perform some tests with it?

Yes. I have a demo program that you will have to create an account for. Once you get a password, log in and notice the Excel icon on the top right. Click it and you will get an XLS file. Thanks for looking into it.

OK, I'll try it elsewhere then. :P
(Don't actually want to register anywhere...)

Maybe it depends on the created xls file? A .zip file, for example, works fine here...

OK. I created an account for you "guest@othenos.com", password "12345'. It will only be good for today then I'll disabled it.

Works for me. I presume you just accidentally ticked the "Always do this" checkbox...

:?

Perhaps. If so, do you know how to undo the "Always Do This" checkbox? There is dialog anymore.

never mind. I figured it out. Go to Tools->Options->Applications. Find "Microsoft Works Spreadsheet" (in my case) and then change the Action to "Always Ask" or in my case "use scalc.exe"

Thanks for your help.

Even with the Nightly Tester Tools installed, I can't get a run option to appear with Minefield aka Firefox 3.7a1pre. :(

I haven't tested it with Fx3.7 builds yet, as pre-alpha builds may still change a lot anyway. I will start testing it when there's a beta version available.

Released v2.1.2, added sv-SE locale and bumped compatibility. When 3.6b1 is released, I will check if everything's still fine.

J4I: It doesn't work in recent 3.6b1-pre nightly versions!

I tried to install OpenDownload in FireFox 3.5.3 and it fails saying that "It is not valid install package".

I think I found the problem. I did not first"Check" the box that says "Let me to install this experimental addon". I just clicked the button to download then then when it tried to install it gave the error message. This time I "Checked' the "Let me..." box first and the download button turned green and then it installed without problem. What I want to know is why does the Mozilla add-on page allow you to download the addon whether the box is checked or not. There is no warning that installation will fail if the box is not checked.
