Firefox can play back most media files these days. We recently added a save option which should show up on Firefox Beta in a few weeks.

As I said on the upcoming version of Firefox Beta will have a context menu option to save such media. This will be released to the Play Store at the end of the first week of April.

If you want to try a developer build you can download Aurora 22 from http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/mobile/aurora/

@ kbrosnan, okk dear iwill wait for it but I also want to suggest u that please try to include quit option and a feature in which even if we close or minimize the firefox beta, even then downloading will continue to move in background........ because in firefox 20 beta when I minimze the firefox.... the downloading stops or stuck at a point.......
