Not all videos have 720 format available. Can you watch the same video with 720? If you cannot watch it then you cannot download it either.

do you mean download as in watch at youtube.com or save to your computer? To watch 720 make sure your internet is fast enough first of all. If you mean save it you're not supposed to (there's a sticky about it at the top of the help topics, it's against their T&C's) and asking about it might get you into trouble :)

I don't understand how there is some addons on firefox that save the videos and there are available and legal.

@forsubhi, Youtube's ToS specifically disallow downloading videos. Please see the link Cheesemill posted.
