Hi

All other borowsers load youtube but not firefox it hangs on loading youtube on red like above at quarter fill and the buffering ring keeps en-circling like a shark. It has occured since update to Firefox version 65.0.2 on 64bit. Please fix this and kindly get back to me. I checked my router, dns, ethernet adapter etc. and all my pc's have this issue since this version of firefox came out. I am throughly fed up. Please get back to me asap. I am not a noob and have exhausted all possible troubleshooting steps. Refreshed firefox, reinstalled it after removing it with proper scrubbing software, checked the about:config everything I can possibly think of and even scoured the forums. I just spent 4 hours of my life trying to fix this and even did a previous windows backup restore to no avail.

I am starting this new thread, as the thread showing the issue as noted in my topic applies to me, but is currently going on with lastest firefox.

I am using Windows 10 64 bit and I tried everything, including safe mode, etc. etc. in the other thread ,and nothing is working.

Its not windows 10 because chrome and edge work fine regarding this issue.

I was unable toget 'automatically add' my info here in chrome browser, so I had to do it in FF ,and I'm pasting it here now:

Hey, ive read some other threads but didnt notice anything that solves the problem. So yeah, recently, like 3 days ago or so, youtube videos started randomly not loading. I mostly use youtube to play music, got my own playlist, but now the songs try to load for like 10 seconds or so and then skip to other song. Tried playing a song not as a part of playlist, but a separate video. Tried to load, but eventually got error. On read more there were few suggestions, ive tried them all, nothing changed. Deleted cookies and cache. Tried playing firefox in safemode, then youtube videos work fine. btw, i guess i should mention, that i use adblock plus so that i could play the playlist and not get those 10 minute ads between every song. if i manually disable adblock, nothing changes mostly. Though 1 time the video started with an ad before the song but only once. if anyone could help me i would appreciate it. If u need any more info ask away :) (so far it seems like only videos from my playlist fail to load)

Hello, Mozilla Firefox is my default browser and my favorite one

However, I have an issue when surfing on Youtube because at least one of the keyboard shortcuts cannot be used with Mozilla Firefox, while it works ok with both Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge

Precisely, while on the French keyboard striking the "?" (question mark) key allows to reduce the speed of the video, the opposite shortcut "." (dot) does not works when it should increase the speed

Is there any technical conflict preventing for this dot shortcut to work, or was this forgotten in a way during the development phase?

In any case could it be possible to implement this in a next update?

Many thanks

I have used Firefox since its inception but I am my wits end. I have always been extremely pleased with Firefox's performance and options, and even recommended it highly to others....... Until recently, (issues started around Version 39 going forward). Unwillingly I have started to migrate to using Internet Explorer, (11.0.9600), more, to view the pages that Firefox is apparently having issues with and cannot run some of the options that the page offers; (Ex. YouTube Video Editor. Firefox shows an error window stating that in order to use the Editor, it needs a more recent version of Flash to be installed, see image). Yet, when I open the exact same page in IE, it has absolutely no issues with running the Audio/ Video editing tools, (see image). I am using FF 46.0.1 and Flash 21.0.0.242, (Most Recent Version), Windows 8.1, 4GB RAM. Why is there a conflict where options on YouTube and other sites like Twitter do not work or sometimes don't even show at all? Firefox is also having Script "collisions" when playing on pogo.com, (see image), and on occasion, causes Firefox to crash completely and send error reports back to Mozilla(?), (This is becoming more frequent). I have also noticed huge delays, where you are unable to click on any link, option, or textbox on the page for periods lasting from 2-3 seconds and up to one minute, (it does not show a "page not responding" message, however, it does show in Task Manager that Firefox is "Not Responding"). I have done some trouble shooting on my end using the Firefox help forum using suggestions, such as "Refresh Firefox" which with all of the add-ons removed, Firefox did start up a little more instantaneous than the normal 5 seconds with add-ons installed. Running with the "refreshed Firefox", there was very little to no appreciable difference in the lags, slowness, and Script issues. I have also done a complete clean install of Firefox, (even with a new profile). Once again, this made no real appreciable difference with the performance improving of Firefox. I also continue to notice that Firefox uses a very large amount of CPU resources; in excess of 65%-98%. ***So much for the screenshots..... The screenshot started out at about 200kb in size, the picture would not upload after waiting 5 minutes, (at the time of upload, my up speed was 11.64Mbps). I have tried about 5 different times uploading this, each time using Paint to shrink the size of the picture and file. When I got the Jpg down to a small 6.08kb, (and waiting 10 minutes this time), I gave up on trying to upload the picture(s)...

I was getting errors while playing youtube videos : "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available"

I tried disabling addons and a bunch of other things that I saw googling through the error. I eventually uninstalled and reinstalled firefox to see if a clean installation would work. It didn't. I saw next someone mention that it might be a windows media issue and since I have Windows 10N I've had to download the Windows 10 Media Feature Pack before for something. I tried to download and reinstall that. Since then, it's gotten worse. My tabs how completely crash if there's any video on the tabs. They also possibly crash for other reasons, but I'm not sure (when I go to pages where I don't think there's any video, but who knows.

Crash report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/455b90e2-a0ed-4182-859b-78d610190217

It seems like there's something wrong with msvp9dec.dll, which seems to be a Windows file. I'm not quite sure what it is or what to re-install to fix it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Recently, I noticed that when I attempt to "share" a YouTube video and click the share button, I get no embed codes. In fact I get no options at all. And, when I tried to share a YouTube playlist, again, nothing happens except an apparent text box opens that I cannot type or enter anything into. I use a Macbook Pro at work, with Firefox as my browser and everything works just as it should on YouTube. Since this is a quite recent problem with my Dell desktop (Firefox browser) at home, I suspect something has changed resulting in my current issue. Thanks for any help!

Everytime I try to go to Youtube after a long wait for Firefox to connect to the site I get this error message:

Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at www.youtube.com.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the
   Web.

Okay, so before, when I loaded up 100+ Youtube videos, they stayed when switching tabs - no autoplay. Suddenly they decide to autoplay when switching tabs - note, I've not done anything to my settings or plugins. Fair enough, maybe you changed something (which you often do, without informing). So I check the options. It was on "Block audio", which obviously didn't work, so I tried "Block Audio and Video" - which WORKS, but now both the video is paused (which I want) AND the audio is set to mute (which I DON'T want) - so... what does it take to have Youtube wait for a click to start playing a video loaded in a background tab, but KEEP AUDIO ACTIVE, so I don't also have to unmute the damn video?

Today firefox prompted me to upgrade to the latest version, i upgraded to 75.0, then a problem began with youtube. whenever i hover the mouse over the video window the progress bar comes up with white background instead of being transparent as usual, and that huge white bar hides half the video window. i attached a picture, in the top the video is normal when the progress bar is hidden, but when i hover the mouse to bring the progress bar this white monster bar comes up and hides half the screen. the exact same thing happens when the video is full screen too.

i tried removing all plug-ins and extensions, it still happened.

i cleared cache, history, cookies, it still happened.

i logged off completely, it still happened when i played a video without being logged in.

i started firefix in safe mode, still happened in safe mode.

chrome, opera, and edge work alright on youtube. only firefox following today's update. Any help? Thanks

I'm using YouTube from a Mac with OS Mojave version 10.14, Firefox version 63.0.1. YouTube videos just aren't showing up for me, either on the YouTube site or embedded. This is true:

- for multiple videos;

- after deleting YouTube's cookies from my browser;

- whether I'm signed into YouTube or not;

- whether I disable AdBlock (and my other handful of extensions) or not;

- whether I started Firefox in Safe Mode or not.

I've attached a couple of screenshots of what YouTube looks like for me. Most of the time it loads correctly, but the video just doesn't appear. Sometimes (e.g. after disabling all add-ons and refreshing) it loads the other, whiter, even less interactive option. Oh! And it works fine in Safari on the same device.

Help would be much appreciated please!

Dear all,

I am having a severe issue using Firefox on Linux. That is when I use the browser to watch YouTube it is almost guaranteed that the entire system will hang, become unresponsive and then require a hard reset.

I'm using Xubuntu 19.04.

The laptop is a ThinkPad T450. It has a standard configuration except that I installed a SSD. I ran a comprehensive self-test using the Lenovo BIOS' testing feature and everything was given the all-clear. I note that the same problem doesn't occur on my preferred WebKit-derived browser which is Vivaldi.

I'm not the only owner of a T450 in my household. Curiously, this other T450 which runs Xubuntu 18.04 (LTS) does not manifest the same issue. This system also uses Firefox as its browser.

I was advised to check the system logfiles. The only mention of anything likely in the logfiles is the xsession-errors file:

(xfce4-panel:1291): xfce4-panel-CRITICAL **: 21:01:45.450: panel-window.c:2245 (panel_window_active_window_geometry_changed): expression 'WNCK_IS_WINDOW (active_window)' failed.

Reference to my post on the Ubuntu forums: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2426276

I'd greatly value any help to solve this issue. I'm willing to look at other logfiles or send over any additional information that might help diagnose this problem. Anything to help me get back to using my browser of choice!

Kind regards. Thran
