Can't See YouTube Comments

  • I can't see any YouTube comments using Vivaldi.
    I can see comments with other browsers.

    I am using the latest Vivaldi Snapshot on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

    1.) What Windows version do you use?
    2.) What extensions do you use?
    3.) What security software do you use? (firewall, antivirus, etc)

  • Hi.

    I have already stated my Windows version in my first post.
    I use Windows Defender.

    Adblock Plus (I have tried disabling it)
    Clickable Links
    Net Usage Item
    Session Buddy
    Office Online
    Smooth Scroll

    Oops, sorry my bad... it's still early in the morning over here ^^

    Mmh, no common culprit between your extensions. My best guess so far is that you disable win defender to have a look if this might solve your problem (there have been a few issues with blocking media data).
    If this doesn't help try uninstalling adblock (just for testing, because disabling it may not hinder adblock from interfering with your browsing) - if you use customised rules / settings make sure to save them first.

    If this still doesn't help to resolve the issue - you might want to try to refresh your profile (don't worry you can back up your data pretty easy and copy everything back if it doesn't work)
    In the provide link below there is a pretty good instruction on how to do so and how to backup your data:

  • The same thing started to happen to me just recently. For a while everything was OK. It did happen sometime this summer, but quickly stopped happening.

    1.12.955.48 (Stable channel) (32-bit)
    Windows 8.1 64-bit

    When I click on a Youtube comment expansion ("View replies"), it loads something and behaves like it is loading them. But then nothing appears. Sometimes I see one or two replies, but not all. If I view the same thing in another browser, it loads more comments than one or two, and if I then refresh Vivaldi again, those comments still do not appear. Even with cache disabled from developer tools.

    1. Not being able to see youtube comments might be a blessing in disguise.

    2. Youtube requires cookies to work fully in order to use them. Try allowing third party cookies and disabling any extensions that might modify them

    3. Right-click and inspect the page. Then, reload it with the network view open. See if there are any errors being raised when you try to view the comments.

  • Yeah, I still have this problem, but if I need to see YouTube comments, I just use another browser. ⛹🏾♀

  • @dypsis you haven't said if it works, like it does for everyone else, after you've disabled ALL your extensions. It's surely something interfering.
