By default, files with SWF extension are opened with IE.
Firefox menu says "Save Link As..." (with 'k' being the accesskey)

try SWF Catcher extension for Firefox;


I prefer SWF associated with SWF-Opener, great tool for playing SWF with 
association available from the program's view menu (click 
'View/Associate SWF files with SWF-Opener')


Try the best Free Download Manager;


it's open-source now and the newest version has capabilities for FLV 
download from certain sites (YouTube, Google, etc.. )

Drag/Drop the link to the 'DropBox' to have FDM download the file to the 
place of your choosing, click the file to open with SWF Opener, play the 
game. Repeat as necessary.
