Hi Dave,

Based on your answers on this thread as to what you have/haven't done, then you just need to go to about:config and remove the Youtube site specific override entry (right click entry and hit Reset, then restart) you made -

Put it this way, I am 100% certain such a UA string on SeaMonkey will make Youtube show only grey placeholders.
