There are so many FireFox add-ons that no longer work with TenFourFox that I wonder what's the best video downloader that still works? I was a big fan of MiG's Video DownloadHelper until it stopped working as well.

    The old YT add-ons and other video downloaders are mostly dysfunctional today. I resort to web-based downloaders:

    Do you have a favorite? And why? Thank you so much. I'll try these.

    No favorite. If one doesn't work, I try the next one.

    I use DownThemAll! 3.0.8 and FlashGot
    They work most of the times, but if TFF can't play the video, you can't download it.
