youtube -dl and clive work flawlessly. You can also use clive to convert

I have never had a luck with those adds on for Firefox. Even their ftp 
client sucks. That is way I use Opera and Lynx.
Do not get me wrong. I am recommending Opera's  ftp or bittorrent client 
for the serious users but it is good to know that you have them and that 
they work. Opera also has a very solid mail client and slue of other 
features to be desired by Firefox.

My experience with Firefox adds on is miserable.
