yea me neither.

i also have tried all the suggestions in other support posts (turning off extensions, clear cookies, disable tracking protection, ...)

the problem started a few days ago, with the annoying pop-up that i have blocker active on youtube. since yesterday i keep getting a blank youtube screen if i open a video in a new tab and this tab will finish loading like 5 minutes later or something, until then, its not possible to do any action on this tab (no buttons etc.)

i only have this problem in firefox browser, edge and chrome work fine, so its (probably) not an issue with my youtube account etc.

i hope you guys raise awareness to this, so the devs can help us!

Google is constantly running experiments on different users. Try clearing site cookies until the issue goes away.

Does it still happen if you don't sign into your Youtube account?

nope, if i´m not logged in, it works as expected. it´s really strange, because in another browser it works while being logged in.
