Here's an article to start Firefox in safe mode. See if that fixes the issue, do you have any add-ons? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode

Right click any youtube video and then click "Troubleshoot playback".

Not just YouTube...
Fox Now, which apparently uses YouTube, is also bugged by playback issues... notably yellow vertical stripe and a couple pixels high at the bottom horizontally.

Same issue with both sites only after 55.0.3 update was applied.

Windows 10 Home 64
AMD A10 APU
12GB DDR4 RAM

Both sites worked perfectly just before accepting the update to 55.0.3
No other updates were applied for anything else.

People who have been having YouTube video problems of late have been due to some YouTube related extensions installed.

ICQ5: You are correct.

RE: YouTube issues...

For me it was the Firefox 55.0.3 update breaking Dark YouTube Theme 4.1.

If you also run that, which makes it rather easy on the eyes, you may need to disable it, or any other YouTube theme you may be running until your theme is updated to support whatever changed in Firefox 55.0.3.


Hope this helps anyone else having an issue using YouTube in the current (55.0.3) Firefox, or any future updates which may mess with per site theming.
