YouTube videos will not load/load very slowly

Post by dethpig »

Hi all,
I’ve been searching for a solution to a problem that i’ve been having for a while now. It involves youtube when i’m using firefox and i think it’s a browser issue as when i use other browsers youtube will work just fine. youtube will just not load videos in a timely manner. it will take on average 2-3 minutes to load a video with me having to refresh the page like 20 times. other websites work just fine but youtube does not. has anyone else had a similar problem? and if so any workaround/solution? thanks :grin:

Welcome to Eileen's Lounge!

Do you have script blockers and/or ad blockers in Firefox?
Regards,

Yes but would that really be the problem? :(

I don't know, but you might try disabling them temporarily to see if it makes a difference.
