saving binaries when I don't want to....

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1)
    Gecko/20061010 Firefox/2.0



    OK, something changed.

    Now, when I download a message with a binary picture attachment, and
    I double click on the header to have it launch my viewer, it also
    saves the binary in the default folder for saving such things. I
    don't what the binary saved unless I ask Firefox to save it.

    However, I don't want it to automatically save it -- I just want it
    to launch the viewer so I can see the binary in its real form (not
    the small sample which Firefox shows, now, in the message pane.)

    Is this a new "feature"?

    How can I disable it so that launching a binary won't save it to my
    regular binary folder?

    I've looked, but. . . .

    Thanks,
    Alan Moorman

    You say Firefox, but your question reads like you are asking about a
    mail client. Can you clarify?

    Firefox. News groups. Downloading binaries.
    Not wanting to save them until I open them in my viewer and decide if
    I want them or not.
    Firefox saving them when I open them in the viewer.
    Where's the setting?

    Sorry, I have never looked newsgroups via Firefox, I use Thunderbird for
    the purpose, and I only do text based groups. I am afraid I don't have
    an answer for you,
