Download problems

normally i hit download, then save, not open, but now it doesnt give me the option and opens automatically. i really hate it. i dont open it because sometimes i dont install it, i save it for later when i actually need it. can anyone help.

well I think if it opens you can just drag the file/folders onto your computer manually.

but what made it change. i think it might have been some virus in a download FROM

any1 care to help?

Could have been a browser update, or something similar.
