I have done all the recommended solutions including Refreshing Firefox. Youtube still will not run. I just get the pic and the rotating arrow. Have to copy the url and open any other browser and paste. Mac OS vers. 11.6.1 Firefox vers. 94.0.2 64bit

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