Firefox - FTP link opens FireFTP instead of downloading file

Firefox - FTP link opens FireFTP instead of downloading file

(OP)
Been using Firefox with FireFTP add-on for a couple of years now. No problems. Clicking on an FTP link to download something like a PDF from Dell (ftp://ftp.dell.com/manuals/all-products/esuprt_lap...) used to cause the file to be downloaded.

Now all of a sudden it's opening the FireFTP plugin in Firefox and showing me the directory contents. I can't figure out how to put it back. Any ideas???

That link is not working so you are correct, but my problem happens with any link.

I figured out the problem - my laptop still worked fine and the FireFTP version was 2.0.28 but the desktop version was at 2.0.31. So, I found the old version and replaced it on my desktop. Now back to normal.

When updates attack!!!!! Killed 45 minutes of my life.
