yes I second this. This program is so easy, all you need is to paste the url and it always work, unlike those youtube download websites.
NO! the instructions to that link tell you to install it

Go to the three-bars icon at the right corner in FireFox Click on that and select Add-Ons. Within there you can search for "video dowload"
