Have any ideas on how to get flash videos to download?

It would seem the latest update to Firefox (3.613) has killed off the ability to download .flv and any video for that matter. My "Download Helper" extension is still installed, but the "Preferences" are disabled and re-installs don't work.

Just today I used Download Helper to grab an .flv using Firefox 3.6.13 (PPC OSX 10.4.11).
It shows up OK in the Add-Ons window and I can access Prefs.
Is your Download Helper version up to date (v.4.8.1)?
Have you also tried a Repair Permissions on your Mac?

Chuck mentioned some great things to try. In the past, when all else failed for either Flash, QT, etc., I decided to give SnapsProX a try. It worked when all else failed at the time. It's not free, though they offer a trial.

Chuck,
I did the Repair Permissions, I have the latest DH. I'm using Snow Leopard though. When I tried to re-download DH, the Error Message stated,"Unexpected installation error. Review Error Console log for more details -203".

All these problems happened after the FF 3.613 update.

Mike,
I have SnapzProX too.

Strange. I downloaded FF4 Beta because I'd heard that worked; it did. After using it for awhile, I closed it and opened FF 3.613. Now the Download Helper add-on works. Software...
