    Where does Firefox put temporary internet files from Windows Media Player?

    The file it plays says 'mms.345.456.78.78 and ends in wmv
    I don't even know if it's a webpage. I copy and paste it in New Tab. It automatically starts playing in Windows Media Player. I would like to save it to my PC permanently.
    Thanks

    Assuming you're accessing this from a link on another page, right-click the link and take the: "Save link as" option.

    It's not a link.

    I have to copy & paste it into the address. As soon as I do, Windows Media

    Player comes on. The address or file is like this: mms.345.456.78.67wmv

    Thanks for replying. Bump for any advice.

    Veronica, I'm not sure if this will do it in every case, but I've saved media to my computer by going to Tools-Page Info and then you'll see a Media Tab. You can scroll through the list and find the wmv, swf ....whatever you're looking for and use the Save as button.

    Love Firefox!
