Weird YouTube bug? glitch?

ThirithThirith Registered User regular
For the last few days, I've had this utterly weird thing happen when I go to YouTube via my main browser (Firefox). Instead of going to the main page or to any of the sections I click on, e.g. Watch Later or History, the page goes to a YouTube message that I'd looked at a day or so earlier on the Noclip channel. The page then keeps refreshing 1-2 times a second. Whatever I click on on the YouTube page, it defaults back to that link (it's the one here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0fDG3byEcMtbOqPMymDNbw/community?lb=UgzbR6wK07yIkQx4mdR4AaABCQ), i.e. I can't actually do anything on YouTube without changing the browser. Even if I open a new tab and go to www.youtube.com, the same thing happens. No other webpages show the same behaviour.

Any idea what this could be? I was thinking of some sort of browser hijacker, but they'd usually take me to specific other pages, not to some random YouTube community message.

    Okay, weird but not unwelcome: the problem seems to have solved itself. Which makes me a bit wary, but hey, right now YouTube works as it should, so there's that.

    Edit: Nope. Now it just goes to a different channel and message and keeps reloading that. Fuck.

    What extensions do you have installed on Firefox? Do you by any chance have Tab Auto Refresh installed or could it have been installed accidentally?

    I don't, and it's stopped again. It's really weird. Anyway, thanks for the suggestion!

    Possibly there was something in a cookie which youtube put on your Firefox, which somehow confused the youtube site making do weird stuff. If it happens again try deleting youtube cookies.
