    I just tested with my iMac with Mojave 10.14.5 and even when I'm not signed in to anything the comments are all there in Chrome, Safari and Firefox. What browser are you using?

    Also, there's no need to pay for YouTube, outside of YouTube Premium (formerly YouTube Red) which removes ads, etc!

    In addition to browser in use, are you using extensions? Javascript disabled, either manually or via some extension?

    Some ad blockers cause this problem. If you're using one try disabling it and see if that makes a difference.

    Youtube comments aren't showing up? That sounds like an improvement. Don't touch anything or they might come back!

    But yeah, adblocker is a likely culprit.

    under" about" it says Safaria 12.1.1 on this little old Mini mac from 2010 or 2011
    that a local guy updated for me from i believe from " snow leopard"...\ I want to see comments sometimes they are more helpful in my humble opinion.
    How do I tell if the guy installed an adblocker? and how to tell about Java script:? I thought we needed it;;; What exactly does Java script do? if not what is a good alternative?
