Can Reply but Not Comment on YouTube

Most of the fixes I have found for this tell you to change your settings to allow third party cookies in your web browser. Whether or not that works, I’m not willing to enable this. Why should I let more advertisers keep track of what I do online? No thanks!

Last time I could not comment on YouTube I found a fix for it. But, that was about a year ago and there is a new glitch now. (See below).

Everything seems fine until I click the screen inside the comment box… For a moment the comment window shows text saying “Opening…” when that is gone so is my ability to comment. My Google+ avatar disappears. The comment post button ghosts (greys) out. I can type in a comment but I can not save or publish it.

I am logged in to both YouTube and Google. So far I can only comment as a reply to an existing comment. I can not create a comment myself.

  • I have cleared my cache.
  • I have logged out and logged in again.
  • I went in and deleted all my cookies.
  • I changed YouTube settings in my Google+ account, etc.
  • I allowed YouTube to set cookies by changing my AdBlock/ AdKiller filters.

But… I still can not create a comment.

Luckily… my old fix, from last year, fixed the problem again. 

The fix is easy. Click the link above for the explanation.
