Looking for setting to stop panel coming up when launching Firefox

Hello to those who have helped before.... the old eMac has been pressed into service for someone else. I have reinstalled 10.5 then downloaded (obviously old version) Firefox because that is what i'm used to doing. Now when wishing to open FF a panel comes up with a warning that FF is an app downloaded from the internet and do i wish to continue. I have used FF for a few years as a download and can't recall this happening and i'm sure i would remember cos it is a nuisance. I always continue with the opening and all is fine but it is the same process every time. It's fairly irrelevant in the scheme of things as to whether FF is used or not but i would love to know if it is possible to stop the question being asked. i presume it is a thing within the computer and nothing to do with FF itself?.... kind regards.....

Hi again Sue,

No, nothing to do with FF at all.

Disable warnings for all...

Disable for one App...

BTW, TenFourFox is the most up to date browser for our PPCs, they even have G4 & G5 optimized versions...
