Incoherent chatter on issues related to science, computing, and philosophy.
Random chains of thought from a scattered mind.

Save Flash from Firefox

The other day I posted an article on how to place a flash file for display on your desktop. I mention a couple of methods for saving the flash file to your hard drive. Both methods involve examining the source code to get the flash file URL. Turns out there is a much easier way in Firefox. I'll leave the details to the source but basically, you can view a list of all media on the page, including flash files, from the "View Page Info" menu. Once you find the appropriate item in the media list there is a "Save As…" button that allows you to easily store the file to your HD. Very nice stuff.
