Downloading a SWF file from the web in FireFox

(without using any other programs)

Had to download a SWF file from the net and started looking around for something that would do the trick. Thought that a general purpose downloader would be useful (like DAP – Download Accelerator Pro), but am averse to installing a program only for a single use.

Hunted around the net for something and found a video that describes a very convenient way to do so in FF…

It’s a video, but the steps are described below:

  1. Load up the page which has the SWF on it.
  2. Right click on the page somewhere so it shows “View Page Info” (NOTE: VIEW PAGE INFO) and select it.
  3. Select the Media tab.
  4. Select the row which says “Embed” under the Type column (that is most likely the one referencing the SWF file).
  5. Select the “Save As…” button to save it on the hard disk.
