Monitor browser's file transactions?


Hi. I am looking for some way to monitor the files that my browser (FireFox) is grabbing. I specifically want to get the URLs to some video files that a flash web-site is loading. If I could just monitor network traffic on a high enough level to see those URLs I would be set.

How do I do this?

Thanks.

When you download a file, the download manager keeps a history until you clean it. This info should be stored in $HOME/.firefox or $HOME/.phoenix directory ..

ANother way is to use internet via a squid proxy and log all the URL requests on Squid. All the URLS can be found in /var/log/squid directory.

Hey, thanks!

The files aren't downloaded manually, so the download manager won't work, but I think Squid will be just the ticket.

Thanks!
