I have been using the add on Video Downloadhelper with Firefox browser for a couple of years now, and all of a sudden, out of nowhere it no longer will work, claiming I need to install a thing called a companion app. (attached).... https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-02-23-22-31-04-0f2318.png This was never a problem until recently the last week or so, because it would ask whether I wanted to use the companion app. or browser to download, now it will only use the companion app. to download videos. This is only a problem because Macintosh, and Apple are such kill joys when it comes to security that nothing works on them, and it will not install the companion app, because it cannot scan it for viruses or some such nonsense. (attached) https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-02-23-22-31-14-480a6b.png I swear to god, I wish to the lord above that I had NEVER switched over to an Apple computer from my Windows machines, but I thought it was supposed to be a better device, not realizing that it is secure to the point where almost NOTHING can be installed on it. I just do not get how this makes for a better computer experience at all. It all seems like overkill to me, and ridiculous when you cannot even use addons for a browser anymore without the Apple Super Geeks deciding not to allow it for whatever ignorant reason, but making a computer that cannot use any software you didn't purchase from Apple does not improve the experience at all JERKS. It would be different if Apple ever made in applications that were useful / helpful, but they don't and anything they do put out that is worth a spit costs literally THOUSANDS of Dollars because they are so full of themselves at that company that they believe they are the only ones who know how computers should work, or be used. Can someone please explain to me how to make this addon work again, even on a piece of garbage Macintrash device?? Thanks in advance!!
