    hello,

    so i went onto gametrailers.com to find a cool videogame trailer. i did and it gives you an option to download the file in either quicktime or windows media player format. i USED to just click on the windows media player link and then i would get a pop up saying download. BUT now i get a neew tab opened and then the video starts to STREAM!!! how do i disable windows media player from streaming the video. I JUST WANT TO DOWNLOAD TRAILERS.

    thank you.

    (the first picture is before i click, second pic is after i click and then it starts to stream instead of showing up the download toolbar.)

    In Firefox options, Applications tab change the Action next to Movie clip to "Save". You might also have to change the .wmv option.
