why won't firefox allow saving targets in a mep4 from a website?
websites will allow viewer to download items in mep4 or flv format but when it's clicked firefox can not find it. if you right click and try to "save target as" firefox saves it as a "HTML" document.

Please don't try to save by right click. Click ont he link and the download will start automatically. For more information, please see this article Applications panel - Set how Firefox handles different types of files
thanks, but I mentioned in my post that if you click on the links firefox can't find find them.
Can you please let us know the link where it is happening? So we can figure out what is happening there!
Do you get an HTML file in such a case or is it an mp4 file with the wrong file extension?
Did you manually try to give the file the mp.4 file extension?
Can you post a link to a publicly accessible page (i.e. no authentication or signing on required)?
Note that is Firefox this item is labeled as "Save Link As..."
