I've run into a small (but annoying) problem, and I can't figure out how to fix it. Whenever I click a link to download a .zip file it pops up the window to ask if I want to save it to disk or open it. Previously, the default was to save to disk, but it has changed to "Open using CompressedFolder." The default is to save in Internet Explorer.

Changing it to save to disk works, but it doesn't stick. I searched with Google, but the only thing I came up with was a mime.cfg file for mozilla that I didn't find on my computer.

Does anyone have any idea what I might have changed? When I installed the nightly build, I created a new profile. I had been tweaking the configuration files and had screwed a couple of things up, so I deleted my profile and reinstalled phoenix.
