I have a Mac Pro with Firefox and Safari as browsers. I have tried several methods to delete individual downloaded files while in both browsers. How can I delete downloaded files?

It depends where you are saving the downloaded files. By default, they are saved in ~/Downloads (the Downloads folder in your home folder). This folder is a stack on your Dock (unless you've removed it) and files can be deleted from there.
