Manually download video from firefox

Hello everyone! usually to download the videos I find on the internet and use DownloadHelper to 99% of cases it works ... There are some sites that have video inscaricabili, with no plugin! How do I download these videos in a more "manual"? Every video you see on the web is downloaded on your PC, do not know if the cache or temporary files, but I am pretty sure that these videos that I can download to have passed at least once in my hard drive Smiley Happy Help me figure out where to dig, thanks Smiley Happy

Ps: use linux ubuntu

Some videos are not intended to be downloaded. I hope you are not trying to discuss circumventing copy protection. In my opinion that would not be an appropriate use of Firefox, and is not suitable as a support question.

Do the 1% include any sites that have videos that give permission for copying if so give an example with a link to the site and the sites copyright information. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyleft

I do not have in mind an exact site, remember that in the past had happened to me (very few times). I was interested to personal culture, for completeness of knowledge on firefox. It was a question that I ask myself a lot, and looking on the internet I could not fix Smiley Happy

Sorry it is not really possible to investigate such a problem without a specific example. Make a note of this thread, or bookmark it.

If you come across a suitable example in the near future post back and we may look into the problem. If the forums automated process closes the thread before you see one of these rare sites you may at least then add a link to your new question as a cross reference to this thread.
