How can I download the xpi file as opposed to installing an extension straight into the browser?

On https://addons.mozilla.org the "Add to Firefox" button is a link to the xpi file.
Good-bye Firefox.

Right click the link and select "Save Link As."

Many thanks for the quick response to a dumb question. :oops: I had somehow removed the "Save Link As" entry from the Context Menu in my current Firefox browser.
Good-bye Firefox.
