Don't let Complete YouTube Saver die! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is the only tool that I know of that can download *all* YouTube streams in their original form.
Other tools (including tools that are **not** free):
1. Only download three pre-muxed and low quality encoded files (flv 240, mp4 360, and mp4 720), and
2. **Re-encode** those files to make "fake" 1080p files and/or 480p files.
Complete YouTube Saver can download the *actual* 1080p and other high quality video DASH streams, *and* high bitrate audio streams, then **only** uses ffmpeg to mux the stream content to a MP4 file format (there's NO re-encoding, it's the same encode that plays direct from YouTube. You have the option of downloading the higher quality DASH streams for 1080p, 720p, 360p, 240p, etc., as well as *only* high bitrate audio streams... a lot of people don't realize that many YouTube videos actually have 256K CBR and/or 192K VBR streams available, and Complete YouTube Saver can download these in their native M4A encoding!)
While YouTube is not encrypted for the most part, the actual download links for the streams are, which Complete YouTube Saver is able to decrypt from your browser's ability to play the links. YouTube regularly changes the way this works, and it usually stops Complete YouTube Saver from working, so with no more updates, this final version won't last very long.
It would be an ABSOLUTE SHAME to lose this important and useful tool because 150 people (of the over 22,000 users) could not spare $2.00 per month.
Some points to keep in mind about Patreon:
1) For the Patreon "rewards" of adding your name to the donations page and/or adding your name to the "about" window, ***YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO JUST PLEDGE AND NOT HAVE YOUR NAME ADDED TO ANYTHING***, if privacy is a concern for you.
2) YOU CAN EDIT YOUR PLEDGE ***AFTER*** PLEDGING!!
Please don't let this add-on die!
Text glow permanently enabled Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Starting with version 28.7, text glow is permanently enabled with no way to turn it off. Reported on Binaryturf Colorfultabs forums three weeks ago. Installed new version 28.9 today, issue still not fixed. Very annoying.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (28.9).
Does not work for copying URLs Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I tried this so I could right click -> copy link location. If you do that, the URL that gets copied is still the redirect. Furthermore, after you do that, the redirect comes back on the URL, so it will now go to the redirect again if you left click on it.

"The URL doesn't refer to an image, or the image is not publicly accessible."
Same image returns results in Chrome's "Search Google for this image".
Best WORKING YouTube download tool; needs version 5.5.3 and FFMPEG Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Folks, this is the only WORKING app that lets you download full 1080P from YouTube WITHOUT UPCONVERTING FROM 720P. You NEED FFMPEG in order for it to work, and you should also configure the plugin to NOT HIDE the FFMPEG window. Do that and it WILL WORK.
You NEED version 5.5.3 or it will NOT WORK.
In a very sad turn of events, Mozilla, going against its users, has removed version 5.5.3 from their site. I in fact had a Mozilla moderator tell me that he believes that addons like this should be completely banned as he views that this addon is only used for "stealing." Wrap your head around that for a moment. This is also not the first time that Mozilla has removed working versions of Complete YouTube saver from their site with no explanation.
Sadly, it seems there is no Internet link to download version 5.5.3 anywhere else on the net as the developer does not want to set up a GitHub for some reason which would be the best way to solve this problem.
I recommend that you visit the developer's site, and send an e-mail to the e-mail address posted on their front page and request version 5.5.3 from them.
Hopefully something will be figured out soon to support the users of this very useful addon.

Sometimes, for web pages, automatic translation doesn't pick up on the correct language. The plugin doesn't allow the user to specify the source language anywhere for web pages, so for websites where this is the case, the plugin is useless for automatic page translations.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.17.1-signed).
Add separate icon+text settings for individual toolbars and it'll be perfect! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Turning Mozilla into Chrome does not make any kind of sense. If people want Chrome, they'll use Chrome. If they don't like Chrome, they use Mozilla, except, if the Mozilla developers could have their way, those users would be met with a browser that is basically chrome. So why would they use it?
Classic Theme Restorer keeps everything sane. My only quirk is that I like just icons on some toolbars, and icons+text on others. There is an older addon called toolbarmode that adds a context menu per toolbar to allow this, and it still works with Classic Theme Restorer, but, with limited functionality. For example, it can show icons+text with Firefox set to "Icons Only" on **just** the "Additional" toolbar, but the text appears to the side of the icons rather than underneath them. It also can set other toolbars to text only, but not to icons only if Firefox is set to "icons+text." So, it *must* be possible to write a working solution.
Thanks for the all the hard work that must have gone into this extension's development!

The review posted on 4/12/14 is untrue.
I **am** logged in to Scribd. Document is unprotected. Clicking the "Download PDF" from the right click menu does nothing.
Try it yourself if you like to waste time and be frustrated.
Disables my custom toolbar Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I have a custom toolbar (View -> Toolbars -> Customize -> Add new toolbar). This addon hides it with no way that I could figure out to get it back, other than uninstalling ImTranslator. Using Firefox 26.0 on XP.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (7.7.1-signed).
Broken in Firefox 25 and above Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Not only does the add on not work, it breaks the entire Find function in Firefox, starting with version 25.0. Author has apparently stated he will not update the plugin.
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Have been using since 2011!
Still loads with the latest Firefox 26.0, but does not retain Menu or Navigation Toolbar icon size when Firefox is restarted. The icon sizes will revert to whatever is set under "View" -> "Toolbars" -> "Customize", for the "Use Small Icons" check box.
Almost perfect! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
***UPDATE*** - The below review was written without my realizing that the ability to right click individual toolbars and change icon size is **NOT** default Firefox behavior, but behavior that is added from an extension called "toolbarmode" by JSLover, which I installed quite some time ago and forgotten about. This extension has not been updated since 2011. So, the problem is due to that extension, not Classic Toolbar Buttons!
It would still be nice though to get the icon sizes per individual toolbar to retain when Firefox is restarted! :P
This is **almost** perfect.
I'm currently on Firefox 26.0.For the longest time, I have struggled with the annoyance that I cannot have different toolbars, where some toolbars have large icons and some toolbars have small icons. I have to go to "View" -> "Toolbars" -> "Customize", then either select or deselect the "Use Small Icons" toggle checkbox. That means, ***usually***, that **all** (or **most**) toolbars will always end up reverting to small or large icons based on that checkbox, regardless if I right click a specific toolbar, select "Style/Icons" -> "Icons" -> "Small" or "Large".
For example, to reproduce this sort of thing, go to "View" -> "Toolbars" -> "Customize", then select the "Use Small Icons" toggle checkbox. Now right click any button on the navigation toolbar, select "Style/Icons" -> "Icons" -> "Large". You should now have large button icons on the navigation bar. Close Firefox, and restart it. You will see that the navigation toolbar has reverted back to small button icons.I was hoping that Classic Toolbar Buttons would solve this, but it hasn't!
Mozilla keeps disabling these themes Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Please, these have always been the buttons I use for Firefox, every time I update Mozilla disables the plugin because it says it is not compatible. It was awesome when I found this because it worked in Firefox 24, now when I update to 26 it doesn't work again and there's no replacement available. I would make one myself if I knew how.
Can't believe there is so much problems with just a "skin" type plugin, what a major pain in the 4ss.
Saves actual 1080p stream, does not upconvert! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
After YouTube made changes which make 1080p saving impossible using the older conventional add-ons, a whole bunch of fake (and not free) programs started to be advertised which claim full 1080p support. But, they only download the 720p stream, and upconvert it. Many people fall for those and pay for them to get 1080p support back. They may get a 1080p file, but it's simply upscaled from the 720p YouTube download. It's not the actual 1080p YouTube stream.
Complete YouTube saver is free and works... it downloads the actual 1080p stream. As far as I know, the streams are unencrypted, they are just separate video and audio streams now, which is why older add-ons no longer work. Complete YouTube saver automatically downloads both streams and muxes them using FFmpeg. Don't worry, there's nothing complex or anything involved... FFmpeg is a simple executable, and Complete YouTube saver runs it automatically in the background. You don't have to specify anything other than you want to download and save the 1080p stream, and you will get a .mp4 h264 file with video and audio automatically. There is no upconverting, and muxing is not memory or processing intense; it should work just fine even on an old PIII.
When YouTube starts to encrypt the streams (RTMPE), which I suspect they will some day, then we're in a whole new boat of screwed.
Near perfect, easily a five star extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars
One request to the developer... many older people want to print with bigger fonts on sites that use small fonts. It would be super nice if you could please change the maximum size for "Font Size" in the Format dialog to at least 16 instead of 12.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (8.6.1-signed).
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
AWESOME, but **ONE** problem: it does not work in the menu bar (File, Edit, View...). If you drag icons there and set icons to "small," they will revert to "large" when Firefox 14.0.1 is restarted.
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
**But**, it would be REALLY nice to have the menu bar and tool bar use the OS color, so that it has the icons, but not the blue gradient background.
**Please** consider an alternate version of this theme with OS toolbar and menubar background! :)
