    Click on Adblock button, select Disable on youtube.com to completely disable it or you can go into the filter preferences and unblock objects manually.

    Hi, thanks for the reply but when I'm on you tube there is no ad block button at all now so I can't undo the block.

    Type "about:addons" in the address bar, click 'Extensions', on Adblock Plus click 'Options', scroll down and click 'Filter preferences', in 'Custom filters' click 'Ad Blocking Rules', find YouTube and deselect the 'Enabled' box.

    Thanks for the help, I followed the instructions but it wasn't working so in the end I've just clicked to disable ad block.

    When you go on youtube and hover your mouse over where the video should be you should see a little block tag, click it to open filter rules, check Exception rule box and in the new filter type the youtube URL.

    I had a problem with adblock where I could skip ads on vids fine, but instead practically every third click lead to some sort of Pop-up,I wasn't even on youtube.. i've uninstalled it since, and no such problems anymore.. Does anyone know how to fix that?

    Download Adblock and download Do Not Track Plus. You'll never be tracked nor see another advertisement ever again. Obviously for the sake of the websites that I love I tend to allow advertisements to be unblocked.

    Yes.
    I thought have cookies unblocked meant you couldn't save logins etc, but it seems not.. Call me a dummy if I'm thinking about the wrong thing!

    Yeah you can't save logins, but I never do anyway so it doesn't bother me.
