Youtube Can't watch videos only ads. (Playback ID: sEHXuiLJtgNbGvyb)

Every time I try to watch YouTube on Firefox with my macbook air I get this playback error (Playback ID: sEHXuiLJtgNbGvyb).

I am not using any extensions at all. I have already tried turning off hardware acceleration and it did not help. I can watch youtube on any other browser and what is annoying to me is that only the ads are playing on youtube with firefox. For some reason when they do play the bar the play button that it is on seems glitchy and keeps flashing same with youtube's menu bar.

Anyone have a solution?
