This morning Firefox was connecting to youtube.dom quite nicely. Then I accepted and installed the Firefox Update to 63.0.1 (64 bit) and ever since I cannot connect to youtube.com. I get an error page that says: Secure Connection Failed

The connection to www.youtube.com was interrupted while the page was loading.

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I can connect quite nicely on Google Chrome (ugh!) but I want to continue with Firefox. Can this be fixed?

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?

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

Hello,

I have been experiencing issues with the rendering of the navigation menu to the left of https://www.youtube.com/. This problem only occurs when I am signed into an account. I have not been able to replicate it when not signed into YouTube. Normally when I power on my computer and open YouTube, it renders just fine until I refresh the page or click a video then go back to the home page

So far I have tried to:

  • Refresh the page
  • Clear all cookies, cache and data
  • Disable all my extensions
  • Go into incognito and sign into either one of my accounts (problem occurred on both)
  • Relaunch Firefox and restart my computer
  • Check for updates on my computer and for Firefox (everything is up to date)
  • Try the beta of Firefox (uninstalled the beta once I found the same problem)

Unfortunately, non of these solutions have worked and I did test this in two different browsers (edge and chrome) where it successfully rendered it both times. I have included a screenshot that shows what I mean by not rendering.

Thank you for your time

It no longer shows the number of views for youtube videos, and when something (a video or comment) has more than 1000 likes, it just says "1K" instead of showing the precise number.

Is there some reason why Firefox doesn't want us to see the number of people who have viewed a video? Do they have something against precision with numbers over 1000?

I know that it isn't youtube that has changed its format, because the formatting of youtube is still exactly the same as it was on Internet Explorer. So why has Firefox decided to downgrade the formatting of youtube, and how do I change it back? Do they want me to just view all youtube videos on Internet Explorer instead?

You know the saying, if it isn't broken, don't fix it? That saying very much applies here. Please fix this problem, or tell me what I can do to fix it. Thank you.

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!

Good evening !

After reinstalling Windows 10 1809 properly on my computer (total reset), Firefox is unable to access some websites and content such as Mozilla Support page or YouTube videos:

Some details :

- It does'nt happen with other web browsers (tested on Chrome, Edge and Opera). - Youtube homepage loads just fine, but the crash happens when I click on a video, no matter if I'm logged in or not. - Mozilla homepage works just fine, but support page is impossible to reach (I had to use Opera to write these lines) -I installed Microsoft Feature Pack (this one : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/mediafeaturepack), but no improvement. - I tryed to reset the USERAGENT but it was already by default. - I tryed to reinstall Firefox, no improvement. - I have tryed with and without Adobe Flash, no difference, problem is still here.

Here you can see the 7 last error codes found in about:crashes

344c8a0b-7a38-4cd0-b3f7-8a6c3c1630ed 19e98c18-8d14-40d7-b660-351e6c7529e7 593cd913-14f3-4f1c-85c9-897709b2ff9b bc7f1c0e-26e3-47ac-b569-7c2bc6526001 3af8b757-f42d-4d26-bba0-540262e5db55 ed6bf7de-cf15-41c0-a6be-b483007eecd6 ca0b034e-ef1f-49d2-aec0-91d9ad9415d9

Here is a couplet of websites that are impossible to reach at all at the moment, but there should be more ... https://www.clubic.com/ https://www.gettyimages.fr/


My Windows is brand new and official, I have a tower system that works perfectly fine except for this problem, which is very weird, that's why I'm askig you some help !

I can no longer open embedded videos on the two sites listed below, videos which are redirected from YouTube via an email notification subscription (I suspect it is the same with Vimeo and other such related sites). I have tried many suggestions here on the support pages but nothing seems to work.

1. The documentary listed here on the Top Documentary Films site will not open when clicked on - https://topdocumentaryfilms.com/9-11-war-games/ - however, it works fine when clicked directly on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3noExmsCRyg

2. Videos on the Climate Crocks website no longer work, showing simply a blank space where the link usually would be. The video link embedded here does not link or redirect - https://climatecrocks.com/2018/09/18/jennifer-francis-how-climate-and-ice-melt-intensify-hurricanes/ - however, after finding the video link in the "View Page Info" drop down and going directly to the YouTube URL - https://www.youtube.com/embed/cZTiFA39T8I - the video plays normally!

Note that these are embedded links within email notifications!

For the last few days I've been having an issue with Youtube videos where the video player will appear way smaller than it's supposed to be. This happens even with all extensions disabled and zoom reset (I attached two screenshots to show the difference, dark mode one is firefox, light mode is chrome). I believe this may be a problem with Firefox in general, since it seems like a similar issue applies to other websites. For example, the Twitter sidebar has gotten big enough to need a scrollbar of its own (normally it doesnt need this).

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)

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.
