Yday - mozilla disabled a few extensions that allowed you to download videos, the replacements allowed report that they find no videos to download even though I am clearly looking at a page with a video on it. Mozilla did offer an extension which cost money but would like to avoid that.

I tried to look on Brave but the extension store was in Hebrew for some reason. Any help/ideas.

This is working for me right now without installing any programs, but cant download in HD, though they give you a link to install their program to get HD.

Seems a lot of these youtube downloader pages disappear or cease to function eventually, ive used some good ones in the past that I have bookmarked and they are defunct now.
I remember the good old days, when 90+ year olds in nursing homes lived forever. Darn this pesky virus.

OK i had a go and on my end it seemed fussy about which link was pasted in.

When I pasted in this version of the youtube vid link it then offered me the 300+ mb download options (link was obtained from pressing the 'share' link under the video when viewed on youtube)
https://youtu.be/0seMnv1vOn8

So try that short link on your end and see how you go.

yes it and the longer version gives me an option to dl 300 mb files but when you actually try to save it you only get a txt doc to save - so maybe you didnt try to do the whole process?

Yes limited bandwidth so i didnt go through the entire process.

It worked for me a few days ago though when I did download a few videos using that link... i guess i'll add that one to the defunct list.

Not sure if this thread can help with FF extensions and get them to work again...

Ok, it's still working here. You could try that free 4K Video Downloader. It's a nice piece of free software, and easy to use

On a sidenote, the new Tor update just killed all my plugins :/

Opera is on the Chrome platform so might not let you download from YT. I stopped using Brave when they moved to the Chrome platform.I had another look at Brave today and noticed they have Tor build in now. I really don't trust anything Google, but it get's hard to get away from them.
To change language in Brave you can try, Settings > Advanced > Language
I don't trust Firefox since they announced they're working with Soros to fight "Fake News".
I liked Waterfox but it keeps breaking
I'm having a look at Pale Moon browser now

Well I am somewhat embarassed. It seems that Mozilla had screwed up and did not intentionally disable many add ons. They just released a new version and evereything I lost is now restored. Still thanks for all the help.
