Stock browser does nothing, Firefox gives blank screen. Does anyone else have this issue?

Youtube video playback works fine for me in the default Jolla browser using the site http://m.youtube.com/ where I'm automatically redirected after opening http://www.youtube.com/ .

I just played back a video on youtube

Could it be that since both browsers are choking, you're in fact having a connection issue? can you try to turn off and on connections (wlan, and if that doesnt' work, go flight mode and back) and see if it gets any better? on the same connection (if you're on wlan) can you access and play back youtube on a PC? or any other device?

sorry folks, tried your links, still nothing. not a connectivity issue, have checked that already

Weirdly enough, the same YouTube video I just watched using the Jolla browser (even though it took quite some time to buffer before I could view it) gets a "not available for mobile" in the Android Firefox browser.
Tried another video in Firefox, but unsure if it's buffering superslow, or hangs.

UPDATE: reset device, now have audio but no video on stock browser, refrained from installing firefox until someone figures this out
