Study and reach better focus during your video browsing session by removing all distractions from YouTube - such as homepage videos, the notification badge, autoplay, sidebar recommended videos, and more. Increase productivity and never get lost in the sea of videos again!

This is an open-source browser extension, created to help you (and me!) with serious study/learning/focus sessions. The source code can be found on the firefox-official branch here:

Current Features: -Remove all videos on YouTube's homepage. -Remove the notifications bell. -Remove sidebar videos (will also disable autoplay, the recommended video wall after a video ends, and will put the video in theater mode). -Remove all comments.

Open this extension in Firefox browser's toolbar (same icon you see on this page) and select any option you wish to apply to your current tab of YouTube - you can apply as many options as you'd like! These options are only immediately applied to your current tab. If you want to apply these changes to any other tab or window with YouTube open, open this browser extension again (no need to re-select the checkboxes), and all changes will be immediately applied!

Unchecking any option will refresh the page you are on in order to restore the content that was originally there.
