  • No more distractions from youtube.
  • Doesn't work in waterfox. The YT main page attempts to load an infinite number of videos to fill up the empty space, which is a problem I also ran into when trying to use ublock origin and blocktube to block videos on the main page - YT just replaces the blocked videos with new ones until all the empty spots are filled.
    In the case of this add-on & YT's main page, both sides refuse to budge, so the browser gets stuck in a runaway loop of trying to load videos that will never appear, which freezes all tabs in your browser until you take matters into your own hands with task manager.
    I'll update this review accordingly if this major issue is fixed in waterfox.
  • Great add-on that has helped me with my productivity. Highly recommended.
    Thanks, I appreciate hearing that :)
  • Fantastic idea for an add-on! I totally recommend this.

    Bugs/Issues I found (Version 3.1.1, Firefox Windows 10 ver. 71.0):
    - suggestions/comments still show if a video is accessed from outside of youtube (google, whatsapp, pasting link, etc.)
    - suggestions/comments still show if a video page is refreshed (e.g. to fix buffering), or accessed by pressing the previous/next page buttons
    - suggestions/comments still show if a video page is accessed via the suggestions side-bar (that shows up because of the above points)
    - once suggestions/comments show (while blocked), they won't disappear until you close all youtube tabs, and access the site again from the homepage.

    - Have an option to disable youtube autoplay as well (as it's another distraction)
    Thanks for the feedback WaveOfWaves!

    I can't seem to recreate these issues, but I'll be sure to keep an eye out.
  • Nice. Works fine for me. Thx to author. One wish: keep it update cause Google (which become a very bad ugly company and totally lost respect among a lot of users) continues tries to breach personal boundaries enforcing people to watch content which they don't want.
    Thanks Boonkers! Yea there's certainly work to be done toward improving privacy in tech.
  • Thank you for this! Now my youtube is distraction free.
    You're very welcome!
  • Thanks to the dev! You rock man!

    Works pretty fine. Needs more upgrade!
    Thanks! I appreciate the feedback :)
  • No longer works, it will block user uploaded videos but movies are now showing up on the sidebar. It's a good extension, but it just needs that bug fixed to be perfect.
    Thanks for the review! Movie suggestions should now be blocked as of this latest version.
  • I watch alot of esports, this helps remove the spoils in comments and sidebar videos.
    :thumbs up:
  • Was looking for this feature for so long. Youtube recommendations are just disctracting so much, now they are finally gone! Super must to have Addon.
  • I didn't even have to reload the page for this to block not only the sidebar videos, but the end-of-video suggestions as well.
  • I would like to report this add on. For being awesome!!! Works perfectly to eliminate sidebar 'suggested' videos. Theater mode wasn't cutting it. The distracting suggestions would still show up esp if/when the controls mysteriously vanished in theater mode and had to revert to normal mode...thus seeing the rabbit hole distractions again. So far so good. Thx
    UPDATE: AdBlocker Ultimate breaks this add-on. Just an FYI in case anyone using AU says this add-on doesn't work
    Thanks! Glad to be reported :D
  • Good overall, but there's a bug in the current version, when comments are blocked search results don't show up too.
    should be fixed in 3.0.3, thanks for letting me know about this bug :)
  • Thanks for adding my suggestion! :)
    done! latest release (3.0.0) adds the option to hide comments :) thanks for the tip
  • Thanks for this!

    Youtube suggestions are more than likely unrelated to the video or videos you're watching. It's especially bad if you clear out your browser often, like every time you close it. I finally had enough and searched for an extension like this, and here it is!

    I don't think there are others like this, at least not the last time I checked AMO.
  • Useless with polymer off.
    Did not know about disabling polymer, thanks! I'll work on getting this addon to work with polymer turned off.

    Edit: recent version (2.2.0) makes it work with polymer off
  • Thank you for this awesome add-on. Now I don't have to sue YouTube and the idiots that run it.
    You're very welcome :)
