    After streaming a WMV video in Firefox, I noticed my hard drive's memory decrease by about 200 mb, the approx. size of the video. Typically, I can restart my computer and the memory count is back up, but this time it completely disappeared, and I haven't downloaded anything else that would have taken that memory. I've tried clearing out the Firefox cache, to no avail. Does anyone know how I can get it back?

    maybe you should clear your quicktime cache. Or stop using firefox.
