I had a simple easy downloader on my fox page it left a green arrow on the bar for downloads, all I needed to do was click on it and pick the type i wanted (mp3 or flv etc) but youtube was giving me ahard time when I tryed to download more then one video, I would get all the same ones as the first one, so i tryed a different downloader it showed a video reel as it's symbol and it seemed to work but then I accedently clicked on something and it dissapeared. Now whenever i go to the add-ons to get one it says I's been done succsessfully but doesn't show up once I get back to my home page???Can you help fix this issue please!!

I good video downloading software that I recommend and use, is the Freemake Video Downloader. It is free and comes with a Firefox add-on.

I use it to download my friends' YouTube videos.
