Heya, as of the latest update 81.0.1 firefox will no longer play youtube videos for me. I've tried running in safe mode, to no avail, and I can watch videos with other browsers.

Anyone know how to fix this? The firefox support page seems fairly adamant that going to a previous version is a bad idea but will it work?

I have this same problem, I have also tried the steps I found on Support but they are useless. The quote above was entered a month ago and since that update I have not been able to watch anything on Youtube either. However, I found that I do not have these problems on Chrome. After using Firefox for over 20 years I don't really want to switch on a permanent basis but it looks as though I may have to unless Youtube get the digit out.
