I downloaded the Firefox setup but when I open it, it goes to the desktop.  When I open in a new tab I get a blank page.

Huh?  By changing the download location,  I don't see the file at all.  I didn't understand your suggestion anyway.

Browsers download the programs when you save them, they dont install them by themselves, you have to initiate the installation by yourself.

Is there something new about Windows?  If I click on a downloaded file,  it should execute that file. Or at least ask if I want want to open it.

Windows Server is more secure, it makes sure you allow it to run, nothing will run by itself.
Try using Internet Explorer browser, in that you will get an option what you are looking for.
