Hello MarieSmith1.

That must be frustrating. Have you tried what this article suggests to reset how certain download types are handled? I hope it helps.

Have a nice day and good luck.

Are you using an extension to download the videos?

If that is the case then you need to check the Options/Preferences of the extension on the about:addons page.
