    At my sixth form, access to Youtube is restricted to education videos. If I type in youtube.com it goes to Youtube's education homepage.

    I use Mozilla Firefox for Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 10, which operates using Windows 8.1 with Bing.

    Does anyone know of any (Firefox) add-ons or ways to access Youtube normally?

    Thanks

    You could try proxy servers. I've heard that 'hidemyass' is pretty good

    Thanks for the suggestion, but it didn't work. But I did find a site to watch cartoons on that works, so it's alright.

    You could use a proxy from hidemyass.com and configure your browsers proxy settings as the other person has mentioned however using torbrowser might be a good solution too Tor Browser is a browser similar to Firefox that routes your internet traffic through a number of computers around the world and encrypts it at each computer it passes through its surprisingly easy to use and bypasses things such as school firewalls unless the school firewall is blocking connections to the Tor Network.

    To get TorBrowser go to torproject.org and download it for your platform.

    Hope this helps

    If you want quick and easy www.proxysite.com

    May need to untick two of the check boxes to allow plug ins.
