- by Firefox user 17119835, a month agoRated 5 out of 5Powerful productivity tool. With so much information on youtube, much of it is invaluable and at least as much of it is total nonsense. This helps create a barrier between the two.
- by Firefox user 16958702, a month agoRated 2 out of 5I recently couldn't figure out why YouTube videos were taking so long to begin playing (I'm talking 30-60+ seconds). It wasn't my internet (high speed) nor my computer (buffy gaming computer) that was the problem. The video would load just fine when it actually started to play, but it took forever for it to buffer enough to start to play the video. I would often have to refresh the page when the video would seemingly freeze in infinite buffering.
Turns out, it was this extension all along, even though I ONLY used it to remove the trending page tab on the sidebar. How exactly does removing a tab in the sidebar even affect playing a video at all?
- by Juan Diego, 2 months agoRated 5 out of 5This is the best extension that I had in my life, thank you so much, I would thank you a lot if you add a new option about hiding the replies of the comments, because sometimes I want to read the comments but I lose time reading the replies, if you can do that I would be happy, thank you so much again!
- by Ashley Bartlett, 3 months agoRated 5 out of 5Unhook has saved me from so many YouTube spirals. It is so simple to use, very lightweight and makes youtube more lightweight. It does everything it says it does very well.
It's also quick enough to change for when I do want to go following content.

Thanks for the developer's feedback it worked
Developer responseposted 4 months agoHi, unfortunately Mozilla has only been allowing "Recommended Extensions" on Firefox for Android since Jan 2021. However, you can install Unhook on Firefox for Android Nightly following this tutorial (https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2020/09/29/expanded-extension-support-in-firefox-for-android-nightly/). Or, you can just download Kiwi browser from the Play Store and install Unhook from there.

YouTube algorithm is so smart and i always find myself wasting tremendous amount of time watching useless videos.
Thanks a lot for making this.
