Has YouTube done something to try to block gecko or gecko-derived browsers? With SeaMonkey and Pale Moon yesterday evening, I was unable to play any videos I tried, and got only an error message to the effect of the connection is not working and try again later. I blocked an external javascript called "tampering.js" and everything was fine again. There was no problem with chromium-based browsers or with Safari.

FWIW I'd been running a very old UBL version, check for updates came up with nothing, installed 1.16.4.19 from here.

A couple of days ago via SM updates it updated to 1.16.4 20......the latest.
