Download Helper videos have disappeared after changing browser

  Markito 11:02 22 Aug 2014

I have uninstalled Firefox but I appear to have lost some videos which I downloaded using Firefox's add-on, Download Helper. I used to access them by going to Documents - Favourites - Recent Places.

Have I lost the videos from my hand drive now that I am using Google Chrome? If not, can anyone help on how to find them?

I'm using a Windows 8.1 laptop.

If it helps, on my W7 they are downloaded into folder C:\Users\lotvic\dwhelper

Thanks, Lotvic.

You made me think on the right lines and I found it!

(I copied the videos to "my docs" in case I lose that folder again.)
