Firefox and You tube
« on: Mar 05, 2020, 08:36 AM »
Since the last update of FF to ver. 73.0.1 You Tube's first reaction to clicking on a video is to throw an error message. You Tube's suggestion, among other
things, is to use Chrome.  I tried WaterFox but the number of ads, for me, makes that browser a no go on You Tube.
Even You Tube on FF is beset with adds I don't remember seeing. 
Am I missing something??????

I'm running 73.0.1, and have not had any problems. For that matter, I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos over the last few days, and all have worked just fine without a hitch. I wasn't even aware that an issue was afoot.

As far as ads are concerned, I'm using uBlock Origin and I get no ads using FF. However, I do get ads watching YouTube on my television through the Roku.

I have continued to have significant errors with You Tude over the last week.  This morning I shutdown and rebooted and the problem seems to have corrected itself.

I'm glad you got it solved. I'm still in the habit of rebooting a minimum of once a week.
