Since some minutes I can access YouTube.
Firefox tells me:
Address Not Found

Firefox can't find the server at www.youtube.com.

I can see something that looks like a CSS-free text dump of the site or something. Indeed I can't reach the stylesheet...

It actually doesn't look to be a problem with the server names as CenterNetwork is reporting: askshane.org/news-links/youtub ...
