There’s no reason to install a “youtube extension”. All that’s required is Firefox and AdBlock Plus.

(1) visit YouTube
(2) pick and play a video
(3) mash CTRL+Shift+B
(4) in that search bar enter: get_vid
(5) right click that URL, open in new tab
(6) close existing tab.. and download from new tab will commence
(7) rename FLV to suit and watch (in MPlayer or similar)

repeat as desired
