  1. 1

    Download "Mozilla Firefox" from the resources section below to the directory of your choice. Once downloaded, follow the on-screen instructions to install "Mozilla Firefox" and open it as your browser.

  2. 2

    Find a program which enables you to capture or record "Adobe Flash Player" videos and save them in a viewable format. There is an abundance of free "Add-ons" on the internet such as "FlashGet" or "DownloadHelper" which can both be found in the resource section. Download the program of your choice.

  3. 3

    Open your downloaded program and read the "help section" which will guide you through the setup process. Once installed, the "Add-on" will sync with "Mozilla Firefox" and you will be able to use it to capture and record "Adobe Flash Player" video.

  4. 4

    Open the "Adobe Flash Player" video you wish to record in your "Mozilla Firefox" browser. Some recording "Add-ons" will activate automatically and allow you to save the video immediately. If this is not the case, it will be available under the ' "Tools > Add-ons" section of your toolbar.

  5. 5

    Activate the "Add-on" and save the video to the directory of your choice.

Tips and warnings

  • Most "Add-ons" convert "Adobe Flash Player" videos to "flv." format, in which case you will probably need an "flv. converter" to allow downloaded video to be viewed on devices such as "Windows Media Player".
  • Always enable "antivirus software" when downloading anything from the internet.
