YOUTUBE: No Home Page & No Initial Comments Section via FireFox: In YouTube via FireFox the YouTube Home Page and Comment Entry on videos is missing. Why is this? Ever since the dawn of FireFox this has always been missing. Please go use Chrome, Chromium, and Brave. You will see when you select a certain YouTube Channel, you will get a Home Page. You do not get this in FireFox. The second issue that has always been is the fact that you cannot comment on videos because the Comment Entry is missing via FireFox.

FireFox needs to correct this problematic issue. I am using Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia. I have also used Windows 10 and the same problem exist there. I want the FireFox Team to use Linux Mint to see what you get from the FireFox Browser in the Software Manager. Question; is this the same Browser that is currently available via the website? If not, then we have a huge problem with the Linux Team and Linux period that needs to be resolved. Both the FireFox Team & the Linux Team needs to work together to get this fixed.

I would provide Screenshots but I want people to actually go and see for themselves. Go get Linux Mint and install FireFox via the Software Manager. Go to YouTube to see what I am talking about.

Sincerely, KLCJR77 Productions

hey guys, i wasnt sure where i could put this info, i have discovered some info regarding the "FLASH PLAYER PLUGIN." that doesnt seem to be documented on any kb article or support thread, so hopefully one of you will be able to help getting this submitted. obviously this wont fix everyone's problem, but it should be included.

THE PROBLEM::

Flash Player Hanging or Crashing (unable to watch flash/video content) Script has become unresponsive error message when trying to view flash/video content

THE SOLUTION:

a possible cause to this problem is that you have lost permissions to the file directory where flash is actually stored. without these permissions you will be unable to properly utilize the flash plugin on firefox.

to fix the problem we will need to update the security settings on the flash directory.

for 32 bit machines: C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash

for 64 bit machines: C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash

navigate to the \Macromed\ folder and right click on the flash folder and select properties. click on the security tab at the top of this box then on the advanced button at the bottom of this box. after navigating to this screen, you will need to click change permissions. first make sure there is no deny statement which is denying access to this folder, if one exists, remove it. second make sure that the name "Everyone" has the abilty to read and execute, to do this: click on everyone, then edit. next, select: apply any changes to: "This folder, subfolders, and files." this is at the top of the edit box. after you click ok to the changes you made, you will need to enable the option: "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object." now click the apply button, then ok button. now check to see if firefox is working.


if you find that you are unable to change these permissions, then you lost access to the parent folders as well and they are replacing child object permissions. you will need to apply the solution above to the parent folder that is overriding the permissions. this will either be: \system32\ or \SysWOW64\ depending on your machine or possibly even the \Windows\ folder.

If you find that these parent folders indeed had their permissions lost, then you have likely acquired some malware. You should download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and do an update and full scan.

Last night around 8pm I watched a Youtube video without a problem, closed my browser and did other things for awhile. When I got back on at about 10pm and tried to watch another video the video suddenly stopped a few seconds, gave me "An error has occurred" then suddenly the video started again at the point it stopped but now there was a little bracket at the stopping/restart point (see image attachment). This wouldn't be a problem if it happened once in awhile but since last night it happens with EVERY video regardless of length or quality. In fact, sometimes it forces me to watch it on the highest quality and makes the other options unavailable. If I try to refresh it takes a LONG or simply refreshes forever. And heaven forbid I should have any other windows or tabs open when this happens because they'll suddenly stop loading or get REALLY laggy. I have no choice but to watch Youtube in IE which works surprisingly well and doesn't do any of the crap I've just described.

Everything is up-to-date. I have cleared cashe, temp files, cookies and history. I have not downloaded or installed anything in the last 24 hours. I've asked other people who use FF about this and they all say it's fine so I don't know what to do anymore.

Youtube works weird now: when video is played and I try to open commentaries branches, the page reloads (so the video starts playing from the beginning), and this happens only the first time (I can write and read commentaries after these reloadings) for every video I see. I tried deleting all my plugins, but this wouldn't work. What should I do?

I built my PC about two months ago, until now everything worked fine. Two days ago I installed a graphics tablet and still everything worked fine. But today, as I got to youtube, the mouse freezes, and it won't let me move my mouse, until I leave youtube. But if i use my tablet I can control youtube like everytime. So I tried deinstalling all tablet drivers, rebooting, but it still doesn't work. Please help, I don't really want to control youtube by a graphics tablet all the time. Btw I am using Windows 10.

I installed Firefox after the new update, and some YouTube videos (usually longer ones) won't load and show the error message in the title. I have Windows 10 N, but I installed the Media Feature Pack, and Flash is also installed and up to date. I have no trouble loading videos in Chrome, so it seems to be a Firefox thing.

Thanks in advance.

Whenever I open a YouTube video, the moment the page has finished loading, Firefox instantly scrolls the page down about a centimeter, hiding a small portion of the video behind YouTube's search/menu column. To resolve this, you have to scroll up everytime you watch a video, which is a major annoyance. I have experienced this thoughout many macOS and Firefox releases, tested it with and without add-ins – it doesn't matter, it always happens.

Is this issue known, and is there a known way to fix it? Otherwise this would be an amazing fix for upcoming releases.

Firefox 62 on macOS 10.13.6
