January 22 2018, Was there a major change today on Firestick changing the whole layout of Youtube? It says "Desktop View" on it now. Everything has to be done with the blue dot cursor. Completely different than before and very hard to use.

Hi

Yes, it does look like Google has changed the layout of that page very recently. I have tried it myself from the Firefox for Fire TV home page and it looks like it may have been reset to how it was previously, but I will contact the team that built the app and get this looked into further.

Whilst the page itself is outside of our control, we are continuing to optimise the Firefox for Fire TV viewing experience. In the meantime, if the option is presented to use the mobile page, or can be set that way in the YouTube settings, it should make the page easier to use.

Hi

Just a quick note to let you know that YouTube has changed the design of their site to what it was previously so hopefully, you should see this issue.
