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.
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.
Suggestion: - Have an option to disable youtube autoplay as well (as it's another distraction)
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.
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
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.
