FF 3b is not without its own warts, though. 

I frequently save downloaded video clips to be saved on CD or DVD for 
friends who don't have broadband access.  I have been doing this very 
cleanly in FF 1.5 using an extension named Download Helper -- which 
doesn't work in Firefox 3.   It turns out that there is an update for 
Download Helper but I can't say whether of not that works because 
Firefox 3 can't find the flash player -- which is definitely installed 
'cause I'm listening to the audio from 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LzAXb7qCCAo  right now.  (Foster Brooks

Hopefully, a "compound w" for Firefox will be forthcoming.
