[Solved]Broken Youtube Search Bar

  • I somehow broke the YouTube search bar on my OperaGX and don't know how to fix it. I was going to type something into it when a window opened in the bottom right of my screen, it had text in it kinda like what you'd see in inspect element. I closed out the window and now my search bar on YouTube is messed up and I can't type in it, it's only on GX not normal Opera or Google. The bar is also missing the "search" text and looks a little smaller. I've tried restarting my computer and reinstalling OperaGX but neither fixed it, any suggestions on how to fix it, or what I even did to break it?

    Search bar on normal Opera:

  • @maypo777 Try right clicking on the page and disabling force dark page.

  • @leocg Hi thanks for suggestion, but I've fixed the problem. The window that opened was from the extension uBlock Origin. The extension has a feature that allows you to block certain elements from working on pages, and I somehow had opened that element blocker and blocked the YouTube search bar, its beyond me how I managed that but it's fixed now.
