Windows 7: Downloading .RAR Files in Firefox

Downloading .RAR Files in Firefox

Where do they download to? The selected download spot for my usual downloads which is the "Downloads" Folder, doesn't have any RAR files in it. But when they're done downloading they open WinRAR. I'd like to know so I can delete them off my PC since most of the time their CDs that I Drag and Drop to my Music Folder

If they open Winrar then you have set them to open instead of save
They'll be in one of the temp folders or even in FF's cache.
In Firefox, click Tools, Options, applications tab, under the content column, check for RAR and set it to what you'd like best
