It's a download manager for linux but it recognises and offers to download yt videos. It works very well.

Please dont misunderstand but I don't want to use a separate app.

I need a Firefox addon that can download from Youtube.

I like and use the mozilla add-on called Complete Youtube Downloader.
The Complete YouTube Downloader, Download every YouTube Video in MP3 192 & 128kbps, MP4 and WEBM (Up to 8K! and HDR), M4A and 3GP Formats. Also Subtitles and Thumbnails can be downloaded!

Complete YouTube Downloader Features:

But YES, it is by Youtube-DL, and you said that you don't want that . . :?

There's no one streaming dl app that will always work, the streaming sites don't link users dl'ing their stuff so they constantly change protocols. So I don't think you should restrict yourself to one or not use youtube-dl. Install several.
