downloding YouTube videos
Copied from Fifefox:
Youtube switched to separate audio/video streaming technology for higher quality formats and no longer provides direct 720p (Since 24 September 2018)/1080p/mp3 streams. Converting these streams to downloadable formats for you needs powerful server infrastructure, therefore 1080p/mp3 downloading has been limited to PRO users. Read more at - https://videodroid.org/pro_upgrade.html. FREE users can download all formats in CACHE where some PRO users fetched the video/audio in past 24 hours, to test the feature you can try downloading popular videos.
If this is the case WHY should I use Firefox? There are other browsers!!!
Firefox, according to the message, allows PRO users to download. Therefore they are able to do it. Please don't cover it up by clouding the issue. Very simply, I will not be using Firefox. Thank you.Read this answer in context 👍 0

What and how YouTube protects their video steams is nothing firefox can do about it. Also Firefox has no software to download YouTube video streams so not sure what your referring to here.

The https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/easy-youtube-video-download/ is a third-party Extension for Firefox and is not made by Mozilla.
Mozilla nor the Firefox web browser has anything to do with the Express or Pro version of the Easy Youtube Video Downloader extensions.
This could be the authors way of convincing people to pay for an extension as a way to download Youtube videos.
