Disable-ing automaticly playing of downloaded mp3.

Postby Peter Witteveen » Wed Jun 20, 2007 4:25 pm

Hi there!

I have a simple question (i think) and i hope that someone can help me.

When i am on a website where i can download mp3 files, instead of downloading it and saving it as a file, my browser uses an plugin to play the mp3 automaticly. This means that i cannot download it as a file to my HDD.

At work, on windows, I do the exact same thing and IE (ms browser) downloads it to the HDD, so i know it is possible on that website. (folkden.com)

I checked the firefox and MPlayer preferences, but i couldn't find an option that allows me to download mp3 instead of playing it.

Greetings, Peter
