    maybe it's a firefox add-on have you tried running firefox in safe mode
    hit the three horizontal lines on the right then Help then Restart with addons disabled
    youtube should work out of the box it does for me on LEAP 15
    first try firefox with a clean user account so we can be sure it's not something in your mozilla profile (you can make a fresh account with yast)
    if a clean Firefix can't access youtube it's something system related in that case
    tell us your repo list
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    tell us your ffmpeg libreries
    Code:
    zypper se -si libav

    I'm thinking it's something with your firefox profile a bad addon or a bad config file I'd recommend doing a Firefox refresh
    https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...s-and-settings
    this will keep your Bookmarks and Logins but it will remove all your addons so make a copy of the addons you use for example in the Firefox address bar go to
    Code:
    about:support
    copy your list of addons and save it to a text file so you can reinstall them latter from AMO https://addons.mozilla.org/
    as always when multimedia is in question do a vendor change to the packman repo
    Code:
    zypper dup --from 5
    you should remove the vlc repo as it can cause issues it comes with it's own version of ffmpeg which is nowhere near as compleate as packman's and the vlc versions are the same on both packman and vlc
    you could also install the latest ffmpeg-4 libreries from packman
    http://packman.links2linux.org/package/ffmpeg-4/873414
    Code:
    zypper in libavcodec58 libavdevice58 libavfilter7 libavformat58 libavresample4 libavutil56 libpostproc55 libswresample3 libswscale5 --from 5
    you also seam to have the mozilla repo mixing mozilla packages might result in strange behavior so run
    Code:
    zypper verify
    to make sure all is fine if you want to use Firefox from the mozilla repo make sure all your Firefox packages are from there

    no problems I actually use Firefox 62 from the mozilla repo but if you're staying with 60 ESR I'd recommend removing the mozilla repo
    Firefox uses the latest installed version of ffmpeg and runs fine with ffmpeg 3.4 which I believe you have but why not use ffmpeg-4 when it's available
    I'm guessing a bad shutdown or a Firefox crash damaged your profile
