YouTube videos black screen
When I play YouTube videos the audio functions but I get a black screen. Tried it with add ons disabled still have problem. Videos play in other android browsers (opera and chrome) and in YouTube app but not in fx.
Cleared cache, cookies, restarted phone, checked for system updates. Not having problem with non YouTube videos.
Using fx version 110.1.0 (Build #2015936097).
Solved: apparently while attempting to block an ad using Adguard I mistapped on the video instead of the ad. I discovered this when I looked in the User Rules section of the Adguard settings.Read this answer in context 👍 0

Wanted to add that when playing a YouTube video that's embedded in another web page I don't get the black screen. But if I press the "Youtube" button on the player to watch the video on the YouTube site it goes back to the black screen.
Bizarre s***, but probably has a simple solution.
A work-a-round would be a fx extension that opens YouTube video links in another browser such as duckgo, opera, chrome (any browser that's YouTube video compatible), but so far I haven't been able to find an extension that does this.
