How To get Flash File from Webpage with Firefox

In the previous post. I told you how to download flash files from a website by browser's cache. If you found out that "how to" is too complicated, I found a simple way to found out the flash file URL, then you can download it to your computer and you can play the flash file when ever you want (Isn't this what you want?)

It's a little bit frustating for the first time to find out how to download flash files from websites. But later on I knew from some forum that you could use firefox to easily get the flash file address.

For example I want to download the animation flash file from bluemountain website in this address
  1. Open the page using Firefox

  2. Then after the flash file loaded right click on the page in select View Page Info

  3. And then you'll see Page Info window, Choose media tab and select the address in the screenshot below, Right click and copy the address

  4. Paste the file in your notepad, or wordpad and you'll see the flash file's adress. The highlited text in image below is the address of the flash file

Then all you need to do is copy the address and paste it in your internet browser and you'll get the flash file
The problem after you download the file is you must do right click on the file and choose play. Anyone with solution?
