How to get Stop Download button back on YouTube?

YouTube has recently removed the Stop Download button from right click menu. I have a very slow internet connection and the feature was really helpful. Is there anyway to stop the video from loading? I don’t mean pause, because it still buffers the video. As per what I have read, the new pause button stops the buffering as well, but it does not seem to do so on mine.

    As mentioned here, you can get it back by following any of these methods :

    1) Use a simple bookmarklet, which you can find on this site : http://www.thelacunablog.com/stop-download-youtube-videos.html

    2) If you want a button on YouTube interface to stop the video, use this userscript : http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/173815

    3) If you are on Google Chrome, you can even use this extension : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stop-download-for-youtube/fmhpemjhcamfpmiaghjhlegclekjegnh/

    Thanks.
