The problem that the screen freezes when the download panel is displayed is occurring again.
At this time, the only solution to this problem is to revert to version 1.6 or earlier.
The download speed will be greatly reduced, but let's accept it as it can't be helped now.

The button under the player is hidden again, but it is possible to call the download panel from the button in the toolbar of the browser.
If the download panel doesn't finish loading, lowering the version to 220.127.116.11 may help.
By the way, the download speed issue has also been resolved since 18.104.22.168.

- Rated 1 out of 5by Head Kangaroo, 8 months agoThe developer must be asleep. I had to revert to 1.1.5 to get the app to work. Why he broke the app and has not fixed it is beyond me. I turned off automatic updates for the app.
Mysteriously, the app updated itself even though I had turned updates off. Naturally, it quit working. It seems very resistant to having 1.1.15 installed and you have to be quick so it does not auto update. I had to try three times this time to get it to install.
I would like to know what the developer is doing!

22.214.171.124 stopped working for me yesterday, the download button had disappeared again a couple days ago, no probs I could use the toolbar shortcut, but since yesterday the DL links won't populate, the entire tab will lock up and firefox will display "this tab is slowing down your browser". 1.1.8 doesn't work for me; rolling back to 1.1.6 technically works, I get the links and can download, but the speeds are basically useless, again back to downloading at like 50KB/s, which takes forever for even a small video.
I REALLY DO DESPISE GOOGLE AND YOUTUBE.

1.1.8 doesn't work for me so I had to go back to 126.96.36.199 by (1) scrolling down on the addon's main page until "Version History" is seen (2) clicking on "See all versions" (3) finding older version 188.8.131.52 and clicking link below it "Download File"
Original review from 4 years ago:
I have used this so much for archiving youtube-only content. It works fantastically and cleanly. I used to use Flashgot, but this is an adequate replacement (since I mostly need downloads from youtube).
Thank you RayLo!
- Rated 3 out of 5by J@yp33, 8 months agoStopped working after 2022.01.13 update.
I loved this add-on because of not only it's the fastest downloader that i've used to work together with turbo downloader add-on (up to 3Mbps vs 82 to 150kbps with Easy Downloader), but also with the clever and neat placement of the download icon. Unlike other that just put a Download button with the word "download" bigger that other things you'll ever see in the page.
I hope this works again on the next update. Will be patient with the other downloader but will keep checking for updates on this every time i can.
