DownloadHelper for Firefox: Download Companion App

For some time now, some functions of the “Video DownloadHelper” can no longer be used from a get-go. The reason is the new browser versions that limit add-ons, especially regarding the permission to write data to the user’s computer.

Now the “Companion App” is available for download, and it solves precisely this problem. It is published as an open-source program so that you can take a look at the program’s code on the developer’s page because they want to achieve the highest possible transparency.


If you use the “Video DownloadHelper” in Firefox or Chrome, the Companion app will provide you with the right additional software to be able to use all extension functions.
