I am extremely new to Mozilla Firefox (which I installed only to download a particular online video) and also installed 'download manager' from the 'add-on' site;
where it saved download manager to, I have no idea.
My question is: how does one download streaming video from the web. I googled this query and discovered: copy the website address into the download manager window this is where I start to get a migraine as the download manager window is so stubborn that it refuses to import anything into it (the web address [via copy'n'past]) or simply the mouse cursor. Someone even suggested another way is to begin the online video, then in Firefox press CTL+J to import the address; sadly nothing works.
Please someone tell me how to record streaming video.
I am using Win 7 32 bit.

1. Look..Tools >Options > General Tab.

2. Tools drop down list usually shows 'Download'

3. You need to download VLC towards the bottom on here:

Hope it helps
