Problem with YouTube in Safari

Postby Izzy_Dixie » Mon Apr 03, 2017 7:41 pm

Hey guys, I've been having this problem with watching YouTube lately, and I've been able to pinpoint the problem down to Adblock Plus.

Picture this, I'm watching a couple of videos, clicking through to suggested videos on the side. When I want to go back to the previous page in Safari, however, it brings me back to the previous website or Top Sites, outside of YouTube. So say I'm browsing Reddit and then move to Youtube, watch a couple of videos. The moment I press the previous page or swipe to the previous page it directs me straight back to Reddit instead of bringing me back to the previous page or video.

Again, ABP in combination with Safari is the problem here, as it works fine in Chrome or in a Private window in Safari. Do you guys know how to fix this?

I am having the same issue and it is frustrating. I do not have a fix, but I do know that it is intact ABP. I did just tried unchecking "Allow some non-obtrusive ads" and it's even worse, as now after you click to watch a video, you cannot even go back to the previous page. It completely grays out the "back" button on the browser. I will probably just use private browsing until this is fixed.
