YouTube keeps blanking out at regular intervals. I can watch videos and try returning to the main page, only to load as blank, with only the menu icon in the upper left corner showing. This keeps happening, and the only solution is to close the browser and use Wise Disk Cleaner (or similar software) to clean the cache before restarting the browser. I have to do this several times pr. Day.

I have tried the most normal solutions I have found, already posted, like:

- Disabling Hardware acceleration - Uninstalling Ad-blockers

I have the following add-ons installed:

- Dashlane - Adblocker Plus - Honey - Return YouTube Dislike - Zotero - Express VPN - LeanLibrary


Are there any other options to attempt to correct this extremely annoying problem? I just want to surf YouTube in peace.

Thanks for any replies in advance!

If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block content (Adblock Plus, NoScript, DuckDuckGo PE, Disconnect, Ghostery, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin), always make sure such extensions do not block content.


You can try these steps in case of issues with webpages:

You can reload webpage(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
  • press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)

Clear the Cache and remove the Cookies for websites that cause problems via the "3-bar" Firefox menu button (Settings), click the padlock icon (Clear cookies and site data) for the domain in the selected tab.

"Remove the Cookies" for websites that cause problems:

  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data: "Manage Data"

"Clear the Cache":

  • Settings -> Privacy & Security
    Cookies and Site Data -> Clear Data -> [X] Cached Web Content -> Clear

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or if userChrome.css/userContent.css is causing the problem.

  • switch to the Default System theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window

You can check for issues with Enhanced Tracking Protection. Firefox shows a purple shield instead of a gray shield at the left end of the location/address bar in case Enhanced Tracking Protection is blocking content.

  • click the shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection

You can check the Web Console for relevant-looking messages like blocked content.

You're not on VPN are you? Windows home or pro? If pro, try Windows Sandbox (VM) and see if you have the same issues. https://www.howtogeek.com/399290/how-to-use-windows-10s-new-sandbox-to-safely-test-apps/ YT works fine for me on Win10. see screenshot
