Youtube not loading properly or working only on Firefox

Posted

All of a sudden Youtube doesn't load properly on Firefox. And when I click on a video is says it couldn't load the page because the address wasn't understood, and I may need "other software". Youtube works fine on other browsers. I hadn't updated anything. Tried resetting, it didn't help.

Chosen solution

Turns out I downloaded a cookie that made Firefox open Youtube in mobile mode on my PC. Cleared cookies and fixed the issue.

Go to:

See how many boxes are Blue-checked.
