    I assume its WMV file.

    I am not sure if this will work but i've done it downloading other file format. Try this, make sure the file is fully downloaded (streamed) on your browser. On Safari, go to Window>Activity (Alt+Ctrl A). On the activity window, look for the one with wmv file, usually it has the largest file size. Double click to initiate download.

    Yeah I was about to ask the same question. How do I save an .swf file? when i double click on it, all it does is just open the file in another Safari window.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. iMuchas Gracias!

    Once you have the URL of the *.swl file, you can post in anywhere on html (like this forum site), and then right click-save target as. that should work ;)
