That, simply YouTube does not work well with Firefox, among the problems we have that it is possible to log in to YouTube in a normal way, but immediately and frequently in the use of the page the information and interface displayed is that of someone who does not log in, for Therefore, you cannot comment, you cannot save videos in lists, it is a problem that makes me no longer use Firefox but I want to use it again.

I have tested this on other computers and the problem is the same.

What is happening?

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem,

Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

While you are in Troubleshoot(Safe) mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

Thanks, I had already done almost all the indicated process days ago, I tried disabling hardware acceleration and the problem persists. I guess I'm not the only one.

Have you tested your equipment if you have that problem?

I access YouTube many times without issue.

Delete browsing, search and download history on Firefox {web link}

Remove a single website from your history {web link}

Open the History Manager <Control> (Mac=<Command>) <Shift> H. In the search bar, enter the name of the site. Right-click on one of the listings and select Forget About This Site. This should remove all information, including any site settings And Passwords.

The problem persists, I have even tried with the browser with everything deleted, extensions disabled, everything from 0 and the problem persists, I insist, I can log into YouTube normally but immediately the interface shown and the functionality is the same as a person does not logged in.

Sometimes the interface of a logged person is shown but the moment I want to comment on a video, the page restarts, the moment I try to save a video in a playlist nothing happens.

And the problem is not only in my laptop, I have tried several.

I called for more help.

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?

As a test, disable your protection programs.
