Installs Adware - Do NOT install this add-on! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

While this add-on works well for downloading videos, it installs adware without any notification to the user. And while the developer has replied to several reviews here stating that the adware feature can be deactivated by de-selecting the Advisor box in the add-on settings, I do not have such an option!

Better to use one of the many websites that offer video download features to directly download videos...

includes Offers4U adware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

If you look at Amazon items with this enabled, you get Offers4U pop-ins. There's a checkbox in the addon's settings to disable it, but who knows if it's not working in the background. The installation process and description NEVER mentioned this inclusion.

works very well Rated 5 out of 5 stars

very easy to use and works very well

Когда плагин включен, его работа препятствует вызову меню FireFox (три горизонтальные линии), меню просто не открывается. Отключив плагина, все приходит в норму.Появилось после последнего обновления плагина (5.40 в FF, на 5.30 все нормально)

EN:When the plugin is enabled, it prevents work-call menu FireFox (three horizontal lines), the menu just does not open. After disconnecting the plugin, everything comes back to normal. Introduced after the last update plugin.(5.40 in FF,at 5.30 okay)

This user has a previous review of this add-on. - очень нужный помощник во время "прогулок" в Интернете! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Это расширение - полезная вещь! Особенно хорошо, что его можно интегрировать не только в Мозилу, но и во многие другие браузеры. Чтобы скачать файл с сайта достаточно нажать на одну кнопку, что, несомненно, очень удобно для пользователей-любителей, которых раздражает слишком "заморочистый" процесс загрузки файлов с Интернета на свой компьютер! Разработчикам - СПАСИБО!!!

BEWARE - THIS IS A SPYWARE INSTALLER!!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Avoid this pluig-in like the plague because it installs Offers4U and it cost me $40.00 get this spyware off my system. This crap should be pulled by Mozilla and banned forever!!

ADWARE - Offers4U Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This plugin installs adware on your computer. Do NOT install or use this. I don't care if you can 'disable' the adware... any plugin that tries to hide something like that is not to be trusted.

Even if it was harmless, it also takes up someone's time and energy to track down where Offers4U came from, because there's no way of telling from the adware itself. I thought I had a damn virus.

Plenty of safe, adware free alternatives that are way better.

The developer said it doesn't take much time to go and disable the adware in the plugin settings. Yeah, once you FIND where Offers4U comes from.. but if you have no idea it can take several hours of hunting before you even get to that point. THAT is what takes the time!!

Spyware/Adware is not the price Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Since it was Mozilla offering this I loaded the add-on with trust. WRONG.. It loaded SPYWARE/ADWARE on my browser without giving me the chance to select/reject it. This is underhanded and unethical. I will never use anything by this company again.


There is nothing on the extension that can not be disabled. Just go to Settings and unmark Advisor box on the bottom of the page.

Shouldn't take much time. After all you won't ever see advertising.

Adware! avoid at all costs. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Include spy/adware for "Offers4U", avoid at all costs.

Only found out that it was this addon after spending 3-4 hours using different anti-virus software to track it down after ads appeared on imdb and amazon.

Users are not informed or aware of this and have no ability to opt-out. Not mentioned in EULA or privacy policy.


Offers4U can be simply disabled by going to Settings and unmarking Adviser check-box.

Contains spyware/spamware - avoid Rated 1 out of 5 stars

In addition to video download, this add-on includes spyware that snoops your web searches, and (without any opt-in requested from you) puts up rival offers to the sites you visit: for example, if you go to and search for hotels, it launches a window with a number of competitor sites, using your query.

It says NOTHING about this on the add-on's page. It says NOTHING about this in the Terms or even in the Privacy information. The only way you could find out about it is if, having already installed it, you:

1. Visit the Add-Ons Firefox menu item.

2. Choose the Extensions tab.

3. Locate " Helper".

4. Click Options. Nope, we're not finished yet.

5. Right at the bottom of the options page for this extension, there's a little button marked "Settings." Click that.

6. Right at the bottom of the settings list, there's an unexplained little extra item marked "Advisor". Yep, that's what you have to untick to avoid having your every web search snooped.

Did you happen to notice anything about an "Advisor", or what it does? No. Thought not.

So, ladies and gentlepeeps, what we have here is an extension, purporting to be a video downloader, that goes to extraordinary lengths to hide the fact that it includes spyware. These people are doing stuff that would be illegal in EU jurisdictions. Decide for yourself: is this trustworthy behaviour? Is this something you really want to have on your system?

Все работает отлично! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Спасибо! Все работает замечательно. Музыка и видео скачиваются без проблем и с VK, и с ютуба.

Скатились Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Стали пропихивать какой-то левый ненужный сейвер, который поставляется в виде exe, а не дополнения, да ещё и не запускается. Пойду искать новую нормальную скачивалку.

Contains 'offers4U' malware! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

You are better off going to their site, without the need for an addon! Fails the idea for an addon with intrusive malware.

How to sort YouTube videos in descending quality order ? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

In previous versions, with YouTube, this downloader always showed first in his list the 720p version, then 480p, 360p, 240p, etc.. Now it always shows 360p first, even if there's a 720p version available, so I have to scroll through the pop-up menu to get to it. WHY ? The preferences show no option to change this order. Thanks in advance for your help.

Contains malware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

A recent update to this has added the 'offers4U' malware that pops up intrusive ads when browsing sites like Amazon. Avoid.

Ottima, la migliore estensione per scaricare video da youtube e altri siti.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

большое спасибо, очень полезное дополнение, и главное что не ориентируется на один какой либо сайт, а охватило собой ряд популярных сайтов :)

I love it but.. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love this extension, it saved me a lot of times, but with the last update it doesn't work anymore on firefox for me..
Of course I checked and the extension is active, the arrow logo is green and I deleted and re-installed it a few times..
I did what the help section and manual said but I can't see the "download" button on the various videos nor can I open the site from the shortcut in the green arrow logo.
Sorry for writing it here! but..any idea how to resolve?
