What is YouTube Adblock Bypass?
YouTube Adblock Bypass is a Firefox extension that changes your User-Agent string on YouTube to imitate a Windows Phone, enabling the bypass of YouTube's ad block ban. It also redirects mobile YouTube links to their desktop counterparts, ensuring the use of the desktop layout. It is recommended to use an ad blocker alongside this extension, as the Windows Phone User-Agent doesn't load most editions.

Summary

This extension:

  1. Changes your User-Agent string on YouTube to be like a Windows Phone (by default, can be changed in the extension's settings). For some reason, those don't have the ad block ban.
  2. Makes m.youtube.com/ redirect to youtube.com/?app=desktop, so that you can still use the desktop layout. (Only on Desktop for obvious reasons)

It is recommended to have an ad blocker alongside this, although the Windows Phone user-agent doesn't load most of them (you'll find outliers in search results).

Warning: Some issues may occur when the Legacy Browser Support addon is installed. You may get incorrectly redirected to the mobile version of YouTube.
