Control Bar on YouTube not appearing
I'm having an issue with the video control bar on YouTube (i.e. the thing that has the play/pause button, shows the video progress, etc.).
Quite recently it has changed: the play/pause button is no longer there; the only way to pause is to click on the video itself. More troublingly, the control bar no longer appears if i hover my cursor over the video; this means that there is no way to see how far along in the video I am without pausing it. This is only a problem I have been having with Firefox; both Chrome and Edge seem to be working fine, so I assume it is a problem with Firefox rather than YouTube itself.
Is there some setting I can change somewhere that will fix this issue?

Hmm, sounds a bit like a mobile/touch interface rather than a desktop/mouse interface.
In case this is some kind of UI experiment, I usually suggest:
Try clearing your Firefox cache and deleting your saved cookies for the site.
(1) Clear Firefox's Cache
See: How to clear the Firefox cache (only cached web content, not all site data)
If you have a large hard drive, this might take a few minutes.
(2) Remove the YouTube cookies (save any pending work first).
While viewing a page on the site, click the lock icon at the left end of the address bar. After a moment, a "Clear Cookies and Site Data" button should appear at the bottom. Go ahead and click that.
In the dialog that opens, you will see one or more matches to the current address so you can remove the site's cookies individually without affecting other sites.
Then try going to the YouTube home page and navigating from there.
