What is going on with using YouTube on Firefox? All of a sudden, the last few days, I keep getting a yellow bar saying that there is a error with Script, Then I find out that the current Firefox does not use Java Script.

This is very annoying, I've and tired of getting this error message every time I open or close a YouTube video. I would prefer that I be able to watch YouTube on Firefox, but I will not watch it much longer if this is what I have to put up with.

I think that if you don't want to allow Java than you provide a platform that with run YouTube without issue. I've used Firefox for sense the early 90s and you are well know for making changes that don't provide a user friendly environment every now and again. If you can't provide a error free means of watching YouTube, I will be looking for a Browser that does. Even though I hate being tracked by Google. I am sure they track my us of YouTube but at least I don't have to put up with poor viewing or have a video interrupted because of Java Script not being used.

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.youtube.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.youtube.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

In the last 24 hours or so, embedded youtube videos on Reddit are mostly not playing back. I get the "playback error" but the website itself works fine.

I've found other posts on the same error but not a resolution that works for me. I know Firefox updated a few days ago but it didn't start then, and I haven't changed or updated anything else. (Everything is up to date)

Hi, I just bought a Surface Go. It's got quite modest specs, Pentium dual core and 4 gb of ram.

However, I'm noticing playback of video, especially Youtube, is incredibly choppy, with lost frames and cuts. It's unwatchable. There is no such problem using Chrome or Edge.

What could be the cause of this? I notice there's some scaling weirdness in some menus in Firefox, as by default the surface scales apps to 150%, could this be a cause?

Thanks

Firefox 73.0.1 and fairly consistant Youtube playback back screen with error message (Kubuntu 19.10 & Windows 10)

When I click on a Youtube video to watch, I usually (but not quite always) get an error message and a black screen where the video should be. Happens in Linux... and in Windows 10. All systems have Kubuntu 19.10 (the HTPC does not have Windows 10), and that's the more pressing OS for a fix in (at least it is for me). A simple F5 press (refresh) usually clears the problem and the video will play, but occasionally it needs a 2nd hit. A couple times the error message and black video do get replaced by the video if I let it sit for a short period (??).

I have an assortment of hardware combinations: 8th Gen Intel based notebook (i5-8250U with iGPU and MX150), an all AMD based gaming system (Ryzen 3600 + RX Vega 56), and my current HTPC (Ryzen 1600 with GT 1030). Does not occur with any other streaming website I use (Primevideo, Crave, Netflix, & Twitch).

The Win10 installs are fully up to date and have the newest MS Feature Media Pack. Kubuntu 19.10 installs are also fully up to date. I do make use of Oibaf's Mesa PPA for more updated Mesa Packages then whats in the *buntu repos (on the notebook and gaming PC, not the HTPC).

I have tried safe mode, I have tried disabling Recommended Performance Settings, disabled plugins, deleted the cache, and performed a browser refresh (because I do like to perform some warranty voiding tweaks like disabling Push notifications), etc, etc, etc.

Youtube audio quality worse on Firefox

I'm working at a music company and we have noticed that audio quality for videos on Youtube is significantly worse in Firefox than Chrome and even the new Chromium based Edge browsers. The audio sounds like it is lower bit-rate with a total loss in low frequencies. You can literally play the same video in one browser, stop it, switch to the other, and immediately notice the difference.

Is this a Firefox caused issue, or do the Chromium based browsers support an audio transport that Firefox does not? I'd hate to think that Google is just purposely using lower bit-rates on browsers other than theirs for no technical reason.

How to Reproduce 1) Open Firefox to a youtube music video on VEMO channel (professional official music videos) 2) Open Chrome to the same URL/Video 3) Play the video on one browser at a time, switching back and forth to hear the difference.

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.

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.
