Change download setting of Firefox

Hi ,
I want to change the Downloads option to Always ask me where to save file.
For that, I opened the
C:\RPAExpress\Applications\FirefoxPortable\FirefoxPortable.exe

and changed the Download settings from Options

But, While running the script, the changes are not getting reflected.
Also, while running the script ,I tried to pause the script and change the download option .
But, for next run the changes get overridden

.

Is there any way available to make this change permanent in Firefox potable browser?

Thank,
Tilak

Hi Tilak,
When you use web actions in RPA Express, Firefox always uses default settings. At the moment, there is no way to change it.

Hi Tilak, try using the tip provided by @rolando_evaris in this post: Download file without auto save on browser
The robot will change the settings for each script execution.

Hi,

I have used above actions in script this solves the issue.

Ctrl +t                //to open a new tab
type "about:preferences"   in address bar &  press enter
Now click on "Always ask where to save file radio".
type ctrl+w to close the opened tab.

Thanks
