    I'm not sure if the title is the exact wording, but while downloading several zip files I tried to speed up the process so I unchecked that little box. Well, now when I download the zip files it doesn't allow me the option to open/save/cancel and I'm not able to put the zip file where I want it--it goes into some temporary file where I'll never find them.

    In short, how do I restore the setting that will bring back those options for me? I hope I'm making sense! Thanks!
