I am using firefox in linux mint basically and today I noticed that when I click on a youtube link it opens my firefox and then the youtube website and the video loads but the video doesn't play and keeps buffering when I click on the play video button. And then if I click on other youtube video those doesn't work too. So I have to close firefox everytime and then when I manually visit the youtube website everything works. But if my browser is closed and then I click on the youtube video it loads the video but doesnt play it and keeps buffering.

Make sure your ffmpeg and libav files are current. see screenshot

You should also download and run a copy of Firefox from a folder. You will have your distro version and mozilla version to compare when you have issues.
