This is the particular video in question https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ad-8HyUXBJU&t=534s It seems strange, but given Mozilla recent decline into the arms of corporate censorship it wouldn't surprise me at all. Hate speech doesnt exist and your recent stance on the subject is only going to cost you more and more of your original user base.

I had no problem.

Make sure you are not blocking content.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?


One issue that seems more common lately is Firefox's Tracking Protection feature. When it is blocking content in a page, a shield icon will appear at the left end of the address bar next to the padlock icon. This article has more info on managing this feature: Tracking Protection {web link}
