Firefox, computer settings, and posting YouTube links

Recommended Posts

Maybe someone here that's tech savvy can offer an explanation of why, when I post YouTube links on this site, that only the link address appears, and not the YouTube preview image, which you can then click on and play the video.

I'm using the latest Firefox version 61.0.2 on a HP laptop with Windows 8.1

Please offer any suggestions. BTY, I have no issues whatsoever in posting YouTube links or pictures on any other forums I frequent.

It's a technical glitch, being looked into.

In the meantime, if the YouTube preview doesn't appear when pasting a link, try re-loading the page once or twice and then it usually works.

Okay Sam, so I paste the link into the body of the message, and the YT preview doesn't appear, and I haven't "Saved" the post yet, and then I "re-load the page".

Is that it? (I'm just trying to do exactly what you mean, and nothing added...) 🤔
