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.

Hi,

Please try updating Firefox Browser. The current version is 65.0 and YouTube works fine in this version.

Go to:

See how many boxes are Blue-checked.
