    Starting this morning when I go to youtube.com with Firefox 20.0 I get:

    "Oops, your web browser is no longer supported"

    Any idea what is causing this? I can still access the site, but I'd rather not be greeted with this message.

    Do you fake the referer?

    No, I Haven't changed the referer (user agent, right?). I use Ghostery and HTTPS Everywhere - I don't know if they are factors, but I've been using them all along and until now I didn't have a problem. I don't know if some change in FF20 is the cause....?

    It could just be Youtube screwing up again. I'm on the same version of FF and haven't seen this issue.

    I tested it yesterday with FF 20.0 and seems to be ok.

    I discovered that the problem was being caused by a plugin called CSFire. It's supposed to protect against cross-scripting attacks, but it was causing some strange interference. The browser is working normally now :)

    You can replace the conflicting addon with NoScript. NS doesn't mess up Youtube and even if you decide to allow scripts globally, it will protect against Cross site scripting. I am a heavy Youtube user, never experience problems from NS/Flash/Firefox/SBIE when watching videos.
