Last day or two throws a popup at basically every youtube page saying nonsence that I need to add some adblock exception (while I do not have such blocking at all) or says it failed to get video information for unknown reason. The message is IMHO too rude (even if it was correct), initially I even thought I somehow got a virus or malware. Previously, it used to work most of the time. Meanwhile, savefrom's extension keeps showing proper download links for most videos. I'm using Violemtmonkey with Firefox.

It still works for me and some other people. I suspect it is because YouTube are doing some A/B Testing, logout your YouTube account or switching browser might work.

You are right, logging out helped indeed. Although it is not a very convenient workaround. If I can somehow help debugging it (like e.g. capture my youtube page load traffic for analysis) please let me know.
