So, embedded Youtube videos suddenly stopped working. I can still watch videos on the Youtube website just fine. Making an embedded video fullscreen also allows me to see it. I have seen an answer on another thread asking to try Safe Mode. Interestingly, disabling every add-on and plugin (besides Flash and Shockwave) does not fix the issue, but using Safe Mode, which theoretically does the same thing, fixes it :S
The embeds are black screen, and when I hover the mouse over them I see the Refresh and HD buttons, but not the Youtube icon on the lower right. Clicking the lower right area still brings me to the Youtube website, so the button still works, just isn't visible. Reinstalling Waterfox and using a new profile do not fix the issue.
I can't test the issue on Firefox because it has a long-standing problem of the Flash Player crashing constantly every second, which rendered it unusable and is the reason I switched to Waterfox in the first place (in which Flash does not crash).
The troubleshoot information with all Waterfox add-ons disabled (which again, doesn't fix the issue, despite Safe Mode fixing it) can be seen by navigating to the "More system details" on the menu to the right.
