1. If you don’t have the Firefox browser, download your free copy.

2. After starting the Firefox application:

  • Go to Tools > Add-ons
  • Click the Get Add-ons tab
  • Search for “youtube video downloader” — you should find Easy YouTube Video Downloader
  • Click “Add to Firefox…”
  • After installation, restart Firefox and review the instructions on the page that appears.
