Windows 7: Firefox Add ons

08 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Pro
Firefox Add ons

I have tried this with two different versions of Firefox and both did the same thing.

I wanted the Video Download Helper addon. I found a page where that addon was at:

I clicked on the "+ Add to Firefox" button and got this:

Name:  ffaddon1.jpg
Views: 10
Size:  35.0 KB

Clicked on "Install Now" button and it said it did install and to restart Firefox and I did.

Here is what I see on FF:

Name:  ffaddon2.jpg
Views: 14
Size:  26.6 KB

If I go to a page that has a video clip either stay on that page or play the video it DOES NOT give me option to download the video.

I have used that addon before and the icon does NOT look right to me.

What am I doing wrong?

It will be there somewhere on you firefox window, you might have to move things about since your using a custom theme and other toolbars.

I have looked and looked and I have not been able to find it. I would not mess with Firefox if IE had anything like this addon that allowed me to download videoes.
