Download mp3 with Firefox

When I click "Download" on a podcast at Planet Money (NPR), it immediately begins to play. I can't seem to get the file to download so I can play it later. Running Firefox on Ubuntu Feisty.

When I go to Edit/Preferences/Configure File types, there is no option for MP3 there and no apparent way to add that file type. I've got mpeg, mpga and mp4 set to save to computer, but this doesn't seem to do the trick.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Well now it's working. Posting on a problem is a sure way to fix it. Maybe it was restarting Firefox after changing the settings.
