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  ;)
Let's hope you will not have any other problems.

Based on the number of views this topic  it sees   to be an active problem. With versions 89 and 90 the video download extension is missing. I just did a new install of win10 pro and installed (first time ASB 89).  I went into the extension with developer switch on and the video download extension is not there.  It is missing so it could not be turned on (a previous solution).  I did an uninstall using https://download.avastbrowser.com/avast_secure_browser_uninstall.exe and installed ASB again using https://www.avast.com/en-us/secure-browser.  The new install was ver 90.  Same thing not video download extension.  At this point I just want to know if this is a problem with the newer versions of ASB, win10 pro, or something specific to using win10 pro or one of its settings.  If you are seeing the same thing please post that you have seen the problem.  Obviously, if you have a solution please post the solution.

It isn't missing or gone,

Make sure that the address bar isn't extended and hiding the icon
If you hover your mouse over the far right end of the address bar, it can be made smaller. (shorter)

I am having the same problem as tm54776. Video downloader is not in extensions.

Over recent weeks I have had bank mode disappear off task bar and have to go through menu to open it. It reappeared as an icon after a reinstall but the link would not work, thus had to continue opening through menu. It was while fixing this problem that I noticed video downloader was in the extensions but not switched on (I had thought maybe YT had blocked its use and that is why it had not been available for a while). Then ad block kept saying it had access to site but did not block any ads. Over the last week I have uninstalled and reinstalled both the premium security program and the browser. Each time I manage to fix something something else goes missing. Currently it is the video downloader. The main thing is ad blocker is working again after the reinstall.

I have the same issue. I'm on Version 90.xxxx. Since version 87 there have been constant issues with Bank Mode, Ad Block and Video downloader.

Having read this and other threads since verion 87.  It appears support is not listening to the Video Downlader issue. Showing someone how to turn on a non-existent extension is not a solution. Rolling back to an earlier version is not a solution. Doing a Clean install is not an solution.

Regarding clean installs they're a complete pain because not all of the settings are restored.  Export Bookmarks used to restore all settings as well as bookmarks. A new feature to restore all settings including White Lists and Auto Launch URLs for Bank Mode would reduce my reluctance to do a clean install in the future.

Version 90 appears to have fixed Bank Mode and and some of the Ad Block issues, but Video Downloader is still an issue.  I have done two clean installs in the last two or three weeks which have wasted considerable time. I have attached an image of the resident extensions from a clean install from version 88 and Video Downloader is not there. So please listen to your customers when they say something is non-existent and provide a solution rather than assuming everyone is ill-informed about the basic functionality of the application. 

Also it would be helpful if more than one image could be posted with each post to fully detail the many issues.

My apologies, DavidR, I overlooked the additional attachment option. Thank you for the advice.

I await your advice on solutions to the disappearance of Video Downloader from Extensions and improving/streamlining the re-install process?

To whom are you addressing this, have you followed any advice in this topic, so there is little to work with.

Please see attached image of Bob3160  Post #12 in this thread. If this is the post you're referring to, I don't really see how this provides a solution.

Or are you referring to this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWnHRin2bho  in the post by cameron_mon from Feb 2017 which demonstrates how to turn on the extension? As you will note from my earlier, post Reply #22 the extension is missing, so it can't be turned on.

What version of the Secure Browser are you using?
