Windows 7 Pro Latest Version of Firefox Latest Version of Download Helper Windows Media Player and VLC are installed

When I download a video file (typically .wmv) the video begins playing on the monitor screen prior to my being able to use Download Helper to download the video and save to the hard drive. This typically results in the video stopping and playing and stopping throughout the download process because of the download speed available. There is never any issue with the final download on the hard drive.

Today I installed latest version of Firefox and Download Helper on another computer. Windows 7 Latest Version of Firefox Latest Version of Download Helper Windows Media Player (only) is installed

Downloaded the same .wmv file downloaded above and the video did NOT begin playing on the monitor screen. Download Helper allowed me to download the file to the hard drive WITHOUT constantly listening to the video start/stop/start/stop etc.

What option (in which program) would allow the playing of the video to be toggled on or off while downloading the .wmv file?

Thank you.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Once the download has started, you can go to another web page. The download should be a separate function.
