Cannot sign in to Youtube

Posted

I don't sign in to youtube a lot to leave comments on videos, so unsure when this started. Maybe with v 71? Sometime in Nov/Dec '19 I would guess.

If you click the sign in box on the youtube home page, nothing happens. Do not get a popup for user/pw as expected. No error message.

I thought it was a script blocker setting or ad blocker setting so I temporarily disabled those but it didn't matter. I read about clearing cookies and adding exceptions for accounts.google and accounts.youtube but that did not help either.

I CAN sign into google though from the google home page. These use the same credentials. So, its something with the youtube site.

Ideas?

Thanks.

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?
