Determine Location of Flash Link

I have a third-party flash web app and when you click a button on this app it processes your vote and then updates the numbers.  I'm trying to determine what script it is running to process the vote (I know it is external).  Is there a way to sort of "grab" the destination URL when it processes this script when I click the button?  It says "transferring" at the bottom of my browser (Firefox) so I know it's doing something.  I know this is a weird request.

Use a packet sniffer like Firebug and see the traffic after you click on the submit button and you probably will get the URL where the SWF is calling to do the process...

Hi CyanBlue...I have firebug installed but am unable to determine where I can view the network traffic...can you be a tad more specific?  I'm not too familiar with this add-on.
