I have Lenovo & Like using the Back & Forward Arrows to serve as a 3rd Dimension for Tab Browsing set for 50 pages per tab maximum & have about 100 Tabs active or semi-active for easy access to things. I use Private Browsing for 1 window to avoid cluttering my Youtube Viewing History & as extra protection against cookies. I like to keep Firefox active for an entire week usually so that I don't have to worry about the 1 Private Browsing Window losing the Youtube order & potential other stuff. The past week I have noticed that Tabs Crash Randomly & often Firefox itself completely crashes when using Youtube. Does anyone know how to fix this without clearing my cache (that kills the history of each tab) I'm tired of the crashes.

Getting "restricted video" error message when trying to play some, not all, YouTube videos. Play fine on Safari

I have upgraded to latest version of Mozilla but am getting the "video unavailable. this video is restricted" error message when trying to play some but not all You Tube videos. I have to copy and paste them in Safari in order to play them. THis is for an individual, private person, not a company so there is no administrator. Other posts have had this same problem but no one has provided an effective resolution or clear explanation as to why this is happening and how to resolve. I assume this is a Firefox issue since there is no problem playing the videos on another browser. Suggestions please

I have a problem with FF73 on my Windows 8 tablet. So in FF72 and all previous versions double tapping on YouTube videos switched between fullscreen and windowed modes of said videos, yet with FF73 for some reason double tapping now does fast forward/fast backwards 10 seconds actions depending on where I tap on the screen, which is something I understand is an expected behaviour on Android and other mobile oriented operating systems. I hate it and want double tap to go to it's old functionality. Going back to FF72 does fix the problem, so the problem is not on YouTube's end. Also going back to the previous version of FF creates a whole set of annoying problems, so it's obviously not optimal. I wonder if there is some hidden config setting introduced in FF73 that tells YouTube I'm on a tablet specifically, which was not previously shared? Any ideas?

I've done a lot of trial and error. Firefox has no issue until I log into my google account, usually for youtube. The moment I do it starts a memory leak that slowly builds. Around 1.6GB is when it starts having problems that affect my computer. Restarting firefox solves this until I log back into google. I've tested for days not logging in with zero memory build up until I log in and it immediately starts to climb.

Basically this happens at any time and it wont let me close Firefox without task manager. in task manager it shows up at system interrupts which uses over 90% of my CPU and at the same time Firefox is using over 10 GB of ram. i have had a look at some fixes like disabling hardware acceleration and stuff but none have worked so far.

When I got the last 2 or 3 updates of firefox, there were some websites I could not fully access. One of them is accounts google which also means not my youtube account either. All this in non-private browsing. I tried disabling all extensions, I tried in safe mode, and nothing changed. Also some other methods which did not work. And when I get to accounts google to sign in, I click on the next button and nothing happens. So, I tried private browsing and was able to sign-in to youtube and accounts google. I've tried all types of combinations on my content blocking but to no good result. I need a solution, please.

PLEASE HELP BEFORE I GO INSANE. Firefox is great with a youtube video download add-on, recently Firefox was asking me to restart with the latest Firefox version 67.01, My youtube downloader was working fine so I put the Firefox restart off till another day and continued for around a week downloading my favourite drummer vids, all was TickaDeeBoo until I decided to go for the latest Firefox 67.01 restart, now my video downloading days are over. I have worked my way through the list of add-on's only to find none of them do the trick. Every time I choose a downloader add-on I click on MP4 360 as it has the audio too, other options are with no audio, no good to anyone. Once clicked, my download destination appears, I click save to store the video in my downloads, in the top right hand corner next to View History & Saved Bookmarks etc is the downward pointing download confirmation arrow which lights up immediately but sadly shows as 0 MegaBytes. Where as when the add-on was working that same downloading arrow would only light up once it had truely downloaded the chosen video. Its really funny you know because about 2months ago I was using an add-on that would only bring up downloading options (MP3,MP4 etc) if you avoided clicking actually on the word "Download", In other words clicking not on the word but away from the word but still inside the box, how weird is that, but it worked everytime, sadly no more. I am a Drummer who follows the lives of my favourite world class Drummers, its great when an add-on works, sound & vision. But when its not working all I can do is record the audio and make do with that. I have been saving in my youtube play list all the video's I've not been able to download in the hope that some day soon that will all change for the better. I sincerely would be over the moon to have this feature back even if its just for a short while (until it all goes pair shaped again) TO THOSE IN THE COMMUNITY, ANY IDEAS ??? Kind Regards, Jonathan.

Earlier today I tried to full screen youtube and It wouldn't work. I saw some suggestions on here saying delete cookies so I did and now it full screens, however the video is partway down the screen and above it is an empty white box. I've tried restarting in safe mode and deleting cookies again and neither of those worked. i'm having no issues in other browsers so I have no idea what could be causing it.

Recently I've noticed that on youtube, the comments are entirely missing using FF on Windows 7. Comments are visible when using IE. I tried clearing cookies as recommended on a thread about a problem posting comments but it did not help. I think this must have happened after updating to v65. I have a Mac on FF v65.0.1 and the comments are there.

And it isn't actually buffering at all. It will load the comments and all the recommended videos, but then just show the spinning buffer wheel yet not use any internet bandwidth at all. I need to reload the page 1-3 times to get it to actually start playing.

This is on MacOS 10.14.3, and a 300Mbit internet connection. The only addons installed are uBlock Origin and User-Agent Switcher.

This never happens in Safari or Chrome, but I don't want to use those because Firefox is the only browser I can stomach on this earth. The rest are all sub-par.

Also... it does this on all my Macs.

I typed in about: cache > under “disk” click on List Cache Entries > then on the page I see Key Data size Fetch count Last Modifed Expires Pinning, under “Expires” some say “Expired Immediately” witch I want to cache it anyway.

A YouTube video was taken down and I still want to see, so I have the URL to the YouTube video and when I type it into Google, Google has a cache of the video page and when I move the slider in the video, I can see the video, however I does not play, it is more of just still images, so I am thinking that if I tell FireFox to ignore “no-cache” header that YouTube has, maybe I can download the video as it it still on YouTube's server.

I looked to see where FireFox stores all files and it seems noting it stored, not even the still images or videos that I have watched before.
