How to set “Ask where to save files” in Firefox

Firefox is one of the best and most popular browsers. It has a nice and simple design and great options to explore. If you find specific options useful, you can enable them to keep them on. On the other hand, some features and alerts can get annoying; if that's the case, you can turn them off.

For example, Firefox has options for downloads as well. You can choose to save the files in a particular folder, but you can choose to be asked where you want the files to be saved each time you download something. You can enable that option in the settings if that's suitable for you. Here, in this article, we will share the steps for that. First, let's see how to set "Always ask where to save files" in Firefox.
