Mimic Firefox for Windows' handling of Open With...

Not exactly sure if this is correct or not, but I think the Add-On 'OpenDownload' will accomplish this.

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/207/

It lets you choose to open downloads with the default OS designated app. When I use it (say, to open dmg files automatically like Safari does), it downloads to a moztemp directory instead of the Downloads directory. I guess it tells the OS to open it, intercepting it before Firefox has a chance to fully write the download to the Downloads directory.
