automatic close after downloading music file link

How can I set Firefox to close after downloading a link to a music file? I use a keyboard with hot keys and have programed them to open radio stations with Media Player. IE closes after the file link is established if I have that program as my default browser. How can I get Firefox to do the same thing?

Hi, could you program one of the hotkeys to execute: Kill jobid where the jobid was the name of the Firefox program task? Or run a bash script? http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20090815113819149

I think this would be better;

Auto Shutdown {web link} Executes a command when all downloads are finished. (supports DownThemAll!)

Where do I type that, what is an SSH, and what should I do if I run Windows and would not be caught dead with an Apple product?

I have downloaded Auto Shutdown NG and it is sitting up there in the upper right corner. But I keep being reminded that I must set up a command for it to work. What command, and were do I set it up?
