So I've just started up my computer and I launch my Avast browser. I head over to YouTube, which is quite a trustworthy website and try to watch some videos, however, I get a notification saying, "Warning! This site contains phishing content." When I do click proceed anyways, I can't scroll or click on the videos. If you know what the issue is, some assistance would be appreciated. Here's a photo I have of it for reference: https://gyazo.com/93100fbe847e99a5e4eb415d2448a581 (paste it into your browser). Thanks for the help!

Ditto, same happening to me too, but using Firefox, so it seems the extension has a bug or something. Pls fix.

Block window does not appear to be AOS or AdBlock, otherwise no issue here viewing youtube from here. 

Is it just the xqc site?

Hmm somehow it fixed itself by today, dunno why, but YouTube is no longer blocked by AOS.
