FF3 honours your Windows security settings for downloading applications. You'll need to change IE settings : To change the setting, open Internet Options (via Control Panel or from Internet Explorer -> Tools) and click the Security tab. With the Internet zone icon highlighted, click the Custom level... button. A list of security settings for the Internet zone will appear. Find the "Launching applications and unsafe files" setting (under Miscellaneous) and select "Prompt (recommended)"

However, this doesn't work on all systems (depending on security policies) so you're probably better off doing as AuctionSniper and wend suggested
