Are you reporting speeds in MBps or Mbps?

i.e. megabytes per second or megabits per second?

(people selling BB to stupid people generally quote the second one because it looks higher)

You need to right click and choose "Save link as"... then it will give you the option to plonk it somewhere and as it doenloads you will get the stats.

dvn, that'll be because Firefox starts the download before you push save or run.
