YouTube is constantly making changes to its website. In our experience, clearing cookies and cache helps to address an issue in 90% of cases. For that, you can use Click&Clean, a little add-on that allows for easy cleaning of cookies, cache and flash plugin data.
Note: Restart Firefox after cleaning up.
