your add-on Ant Video Downloader does NOT work! Why?

I have used Ant Video Downloader for years. Suddenly, it changed, and not for the better. Now, it does not work at all. Why? What happened? What are you going to do about it? When? Must I change browsers to get one that will allow me to download? I like Firefox, other than it s-l-o-w-s way down too much too often.

Thanks , Fred, have to say I did not think Mozilla made the add-ons; sorry if it sounded as though I was saying that. Second, I did the things you suggested; still no success. Third, I seem to remember someone saying that the updates to Windows-10 somehow obliterated certain programs and add-ons, but have not been able to find out more, or what to do about it. Fourth, and again I know Mozilla did not do this, but Google made some "improvements" to Gmail, some of which are a pain in the posterior, to put it charitably, especially there sub-directory sidebar on the left, which now pops in and out and is hard to deal with. Lastly, I have been urged by people I know to switch to Chrome, a move I have resisted, telling them I like Firefox and am sticking with it. One other thing, I have Spotify and it is now putting up a whole row of tabs on Firefox for no apparent reason, other than trying to peddle their premium version. I don;t suppose there's a way to block that. Okay, enough. Thanks for your reply; wish others would respond as promptly as you do. -David Petersen wordster1@gmail.com Austin TX

First of all, add ons are not made by Mozilla, but third parties, and from the add on page they say the latest version only works on Windows at the moment, which platform are you on?

If you go to the add on page, there was an update to the latest version only 2 days ago

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/video-downloader-player/

Also if you go to that page and click on the previous versions link;

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/video-downloader-player/versions/

you can download older versions, try an earlier release if the latest update for it doesn't work, or visit the developers own homepage for support;

Hi David,

One thing that might be worth trying, by default Firefox now uses GPU accelleration, and on many systems, especially if they are not 'high end systems' or a few years old, this can lead to problems like slow downs or ghraphic glitches.

If you click on 'open menu' button, (3 line symbol top right of taskbar), and choose 'preferences', scroll down on the 'general' section and click on the tick where it says 'performance', and 'use recommended settings'.

this will reveal another menu, try unticking 'use hardware accelaration' and try it again, perhaps this is whats causing the issue with your video downloader, or maybe a slowwing firefox.

Hope this helps

Fred
