    The one issue I had was going to youtube.com. As I would scroll it would eventually give me a dialog youtube is not responding and this would be like this for 30-60 seconds. eventually it would go away and the scroll bar would get focus back and then everything worked fine. Since there is no fix out there that seems to work I just went back to IE10............

    The only thing that seems to work is the F12 work around- changing Document Mode from Edge to 10. Then YouTube works as normal but you have to make the change every time you return to YouTube and it's a big pain. What's really infuriating is there has been no acknowledgement from either MS or Google that IE11 doesn't play nice with YouTube.

    I am also having issues on youtube.. If I go here Buddy Guy Live From Red Rocks 2013 FullHD 3D (Optional) - YouTube I do not see any comments, (I tried standard and compatibility mode) with IE 11 under Win 7. I also cleared all cache and restored advanced settings in IE 11 as well as full removal of Flash and reinstall of it. If I use pale moon Youtube works perfectly.
    I also changed Emulation from edge to 10 but there was no change for me, but thanks for the idea Deekeasy!
    Thanks for starting this thread TANWare, I was ready to do a clean install of 7!

    Tanware sorry to HiJack, I solved my issue with a browser reset, now I see all the witty comments in youtube and scrolling seems OK
    Thanks to TreeTopsRanch for your input!!

    I too had issues with Youtube and IE11. I tried some workarounds. I have a number of tracking protections installed, Adblock for IE, and privacy set above medium in options. Best bet, it's Adobe Flash fault, again. When I changed to HTML5 freezes were gone.

    But in the end it doesn't bother me much, I'm slowly dropping Youtube, since it seems it that it gets worse and worse with every crap update.

    Hmm. With the F12 kludge I see comments and normal YouTube performance on both my fully up to date 8.1 and Win7 laptops. I still would like to know why there seems to be nothing official from either the MS or Google camps concerning this mess.

    I assume you are using it in desktop mode... in the modern mode there's no error for me. The desktop version is a bit buggy atm.

    Seems to isolated to just some configurations. I have absolutely no problems with IE 11. (Win 7 64) Youtube plays OK and comments are there. However, lately on FireFox comments are not there as I am using Noscript so it must be blocking the script that allows comments.

    It's quite possible that the issue is the newest version of Adobe Flash, so only those that have specific versions of Flash installed will have a problem. Interestingly, I just tried it in my office, and it worked fine; I had just installed the new version of Flash early this morning, and had the issue at home. So, the problem may have been resolved by a reboot; or, it disappears when you use an external monitor, which I have in my office. I'll check back tonight when I'm home.

    I pulled flash and could get to my page but not load video's. Thing is with IE11 it still locked up with flash gone all together. Not going back until it is resolved, 10 works fine for now...........

    Evil M$ pushing Windows 8.x on us yet again, could not resist................... :)

    Hmm I have to give that a try with IE11 on youtube but FF25 work fine with youtube but I don't have any addon like ad plus or anything to those likes. The only thing is I edited my "Hosts" file to block any ads and redirects so I don't get more crapp then I need to get rid of.
