APB making youtube videos randomly skip to another video

Postby indy » Sat Nov 22, 2014 1:06 am

So ill click on a video in youtube it starts playing, and after a few seconds it skips to a random video in the search results. Incredibly frustrating, it won't stop either. If I don't close the tab it'll keep skipping to another random video after a few seconds of playing. Disabling APB, will will resolve the issue, or using another browser.

Are you using some youtube extension ? or some userscript (installed in greasemonkey) ?

you can try resetting firefox, reinstall only ABP and test again

Ctrl+Shift+A will open the Add-Ons page, then if the Extensions tab isn't already selected, select it, and go to "Adblock Plus" (which should be near the top).

If you want to back up your ABP settings, make a copy of the patterns.ini file from the adblockplus folder in your Firefox profile directory, then after re-installing ABP, close Firefox, copy patterns.ini back in, and reopen the browser.

Once you're in the Add-Ons page, just click Uninstall in the Adblock Plus row to uninstall ABP, then go to https://adblockplus.org/ to re-install; you won't need to restart Firefox first, but it doesn't hurt.
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.

I am also having this issue. Although I'm not sure it's related to apb. I think it happened after my most recent firefox and flash update. Youtube plays a video. 10-15 sec later the video randomly skips to a different video in the list on the side. It will usually play this video without skipping, but it is not the desired choice. This only appears to happen in firefox. Maybe it is something with flash?
