Avast Video Downloader
« on: January 29, 2021, 10:52:32 AM »
Hi,
I'm using the Avast Secure Browser on my Laptop, Desktop and Mobile. I'm experiencing an issue though, which is that Avast Video Downloader is only present on my browser installed on my laptop.  On my laptop I did not do anything for it to be activated, I just noticed it as a function when I used the browser. Is there a way to activate this in the browser settings? I've looked around, but haven't found any information on this.

Thanks!

Aslak.

Hello, aslakkvarstein! Thank you for your posting! Avast Video Downloader extension can be activate(enable/disable) clicking on the menu icon (3 dots)/More Tools/Extensions/Avast Video Downloader. Please, let me know if this solved your request. Thank you!

I'm also having problem with the video downloader not showing up. I'm using ASB version 88.0 and no extensions are shown in More Tools/Extensions.

Hi, enable dev mode to see the extensions.
Win 8.1 [x64] - Avast PremSec 21.5.6354.BCi [UI.646] - EEK - Firefox ESR 78.11 [NS/uBO/PB] - TB 78.11

What if there are no more extensions visible when I enter Dev mode? only user feedback and avast passwords are there. With Dev mode off there is only avast Passwords.

A week ago I formatted everything and started again...just one of those days. Now, I'm having this problem.

Any help appreciated. I'll just keep cruising around for answers.

You could try a clean reinstall of ASB. See/Follow Bob's instructions.

No luck I'm afraid.
I'm trying to work out if I've missed something basic.
checked for updates, uninstalled and now uninstalled using that other method.
Is there something in avast security I need to play with? that wouldn't make any sense.
anywhere to download individual extensions?

Click on the three-dot menu, more tools, select extensions
When that opens, make sure Developer mode (top right) is ON.
Once it's on, you'll see the video downloader. Make sure it's turned on.
That should solve your problem.
I just put this together and hope it helps.

unfortunately, that was the very first thing I checked. I followed all of those steps and as I previously stated, the only extensions are avast passwords and user feedback. that is with dev mode on. with dev mode off only passwords is visible.

so, we can cross that firmly off the list as a solution.

thank you all the same.

I don't know what instructions you followed but,
with Developer mode OFF, nothing shows.
What version of the Secure Browser are you running?

Here's the version I'm using.

I notice quite a few missing extensions in your screenshot.

FIXED!
I gave up and uninstalled again. I thought I might try another version. I'm now back on 86.1.numbers and everything is back to normal. I have no idea what changed.

Thank you all for you advice. Apologies for my vaguely obtuse and sarcastic manner. Its all good natured.

I'll talk to you all again in 2 or 3 years (hopefully longer) when something else goes wrong  ;)
