OpenDownload 2 is a Firefox and SeaMonkey extension that inserts a "Run" button into the "Open File" dialog when downloading files. Clicking the button saves the particular file in your temporary directory and opens it with the assigned application or (for .exe files) runs the application from there.
This add-on is something like the "successor" to Jeremy Gillick's outdated OpenDownload 1.0.0, tested with recent Fx builds and localized.

· v3.4.0 code changes broke error handling; fixed by replacing "alert()" by logging to the console (thanks to roman200).
· partially reverted code changes in 3.4.0 (broke the actual launching of files on *ix systems)
