Looking on the site, it looks like you just click on the link itself that has the 'Download' link. I went to that site wit out doing any sort of hacking or messing with firefox. Now if something lacks that download link, it is probably due to the fact that they are not allowed to distribute it beyond you looking at it in the format presented.

One word of caution. This forum will not support illegal hacks or something illegal if this turns out to be a question that goes beyond the normal allowances of any site or lawful practices.

From Google Books ...

Why is the Download button only available on some books?

Only books in the public domain -- books whose copyrights have expired -- have the download feature available. For users in the United States, this typically means books published before 1923. For users outside the U.S., we make determinations based on appropriate local laws. As with all of our decisions related to Google Books content, we're conservative in our reading of both copyright law and the known facts surrounding a particular book.
Please note than many classic novels whose original editions are in the public domain have been republished, often with additional content, and we treat these newer editions as copyrighted works. Google respects and protects the copyrights of all publishers, and in-copyright editions of these works are not available for download.
Please note that certain public domain works may not yet have "Download" buttons. We are working to include this button on all public domain works as quickly as possibile. We appreciate your patience.
If its not allowed, then discussing about it here is not a good idea. It is not allowed on this forum and I doubt if you will get any help regarding that.
