Some web sites allow files and free mp3 tracks to be downloaded by right clicking on an icon and selecting "save target as ...". But Firefox does not have this option. How do others handle this? I have had to go back to Internet Explorer to use this privilege.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Always been so for me.

Save link as is indeed saving the html instead of the actual mp3 file I'm trying to download. However, I tried it in Internet Explorer with "Save Target As" BUT unfortunately it also downloads the link and not the file.

The issue is we want to download the file not the link. How can we do that?

Here is an example link

You can do it in Google Chrome, so I've left Firefox and use Chrome instead. All problems solved.
