WFM in 51.0b4 (64-bit).

This happens with a clean profile?
Component: Untriaged → Desktop
Flags: needinfo?(akayani)
Product: Firefox → Tech Evangelism
See Also: → bug 1295048
Whiteboard: [platform-rel-Youtube]
Version: 53 Branch → Firefox 53
On MacOS Sierra clean profile, Firefox Nightly 53.0a1 (2016-11-30) (64-bit)
Testing with https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZ6JrBqy0CU

We need a bit more details for being able to reproduce this issue. Screen size, YouTube mode (theater or not), Logged-in or not. 

For now I would be inclined to close it as Worksforme.

It doesn't occur with addons disabled. 

I'll test in more detail tomorrow.

Sorry I should have checked that first in safe mode.

Adblocker is causing the issue.

I wrote the bug report in the ad block forum where it seems to be ignored. I guess we can call it their issue and when others report it they will fix it. Bit surprising that they have done nothing about it when youtube is so awful with ad blocker. 

Bottom line is that perhaps it should be marked off as not an FF problem. Not sure what the protocol is for that so I'm leaving it unconfirmed. If this should be marked resolved, as I think is the case, then make a short note and I'll follow that as the protocol of any other issue i post that is unresolved but someone else's problem.
Thanks Yani! Yes if it's happening because of Adblock, they would need to address the problem.

Closing this report.
