DownLoadHelper on Iceweasel does not work often?


Trying to download the Wikileaks documentary from http://neurobonkers.com/ and downloadhelper gets weirder than usual and get a string of downloads across the screen at the bottom none of which seem to work. Although may be putting deadly viruses into system or something.

Is there a reliable way to get a flashplayer styly video stored on the computer? Downloadhelper often does not work. Thanks any help.
