Well, we more or less started to chat on YouTube - everything's okay. Your comments show, as do the responses (and likes). Firefox is not hiding anything ......

Hi alan9iHs, that is hard to explain! If you view your comments (posted using Firefox) in a private/incognito windows, and/or in a different browser or in the YouTube app, are they visible? Google does have some kind of blocking feature to show comments only to the person who posted them, so it's worth double-checking to make sure they aren't hidden.

Thanks for your quick response. just so i understand, how do i know if i'm viewing in a 'private' window? and how do i undo it?

Hi alan9iHs, to launch a new private window in Firefox for Windows, press Ctrl+Shift+p, or find the "New Private Window" command on the menu.

A new private window usually will have a dark purple welcome page. When you visit YouTube here (you can copy/paste the address of the page from your regular window), you should be logged out because private windows don't share cookies with regular windows. Does that change what you see on the page?

Thanks again for your help, but i still am not receiving any responses or 'likes'. Just so you know, when i revisit the videos i commented on, EVERYONE else has some kind of response, either written or at least a 'like'. but mine. Also, i'm NOT conceited, but surely someone would either agree or disagree with one of the comments. To review my original concern, i had lots of responses when i watched youtube on chrome. Again, thanks for your help and suggestions. Alan Metz

Hello Alan, Just to make sure : When you've posted a comment on Youtube, you get responses and/or likes when you watch YouTube in Chrome (or Edge), but when you watch that same video in Firefox, those responses and/or likes have disappeared  ? (which would be unlikely) Are at least your comments still there  ?

my comments are still there. My concern is i ask questions or make statements hoping for some input. When i scroll down the other comments EVERYONE else has some kind of response but me. It's odd that mine are the only ones not being responded to. This is not my ego speaking, it's just strange i'm the only one. Thanks, alan

Can you share a link to one of the videos so we can remark on whether your comment looks unusual to us, compared with the others?

And don't forget to mention the username you use on YouTube ....

I just went there - what is your YouTube username  ???

more options

Well, there are nearly 5000 comments! So it's a little hard to figure out which one is yours... I had to page way, way down to comments that were 5 to 6 days old before finding several with no thumbs up or down and no replies. But then there were comments that were 1 day old. I don't understand how YouTube arranges them, but I suppose if people aren't passionate about reading comments, most of them will never be seen by anyone.

If you're talking about that "MAGA Hat" video : way too many comments, and most of them don't have a response or a "like".

Maybe the likes only show when you aren't logged in like this forum isn't showing helpful votes for your own replies.
