Unhappy downloadhelper problems

When I use downloadhelper in YouTube, it works at first, but when I then choose another video and try to download it, it just downloads the video I just got again and in fact shows me that that is what will be downloaded. I have to exit YouTube and start all over to get the video I want. This is both awkward and very frustrating for me. I'm using Firefox 26.0 Can anyone help?

Welcome to the forum.

Did you try uninstalling and then reinstalling the extension?

I used DownloadHelper for years but I found this add-on a little while ago - NetVideoHunter - which I like better and which seems more reliable too.

Recently, I have noticed what you describe. Probably the fix is coming soon. As a workaround, I reload the page and all is well. I don't exit Youtube. Personally, I wont trade this addon for any other downloading addon despite the problem.

Why? because its well known and can be trusted. And whenever Youtube make changes that breaks the addon (which is probably the reason why this issue is happening), they fix it quickly.

Google are always changing things with YouTube and extensions struggle to keep up like Bo said they will release a fix soon as that's probably why it's not working.
