Downloading with Firefox

  1. Hi there

    This really is the dumbest, most basic question, but hopefully that means it'll be easy to clear up. I've just transferred over to using Firefox from IE and Im not sure how to download files to my hard drive.

    In IE I just right clicked on a file link and chose the "Save file" option. In this case its a podcast I want to download, and clicking on the link starts the podcast playing straight away. How can I download it to my HD to listen later, Firefox's download manager doesn't seem to have any option for that.

    Thanks for any advice you can spare the time to share!

    Opera is good browser too.
