Every time I get onto Youtube it comes up with Http/1.1 Internal Server Error. Can anyone help me with this?

I have tried accessing it by clicking on the youtube link when I google it. I've waited and come back to try it again. I've cleared all temporary files. Nothing works. I'm using the Mozilla Firefox browser. Does anyone know how to fix this, or is it happening to others too? If it is, please post here. At least I'll know I'm not alone with this.

In response to answers so far.. Typing in the URL or clicking it makes no difference, and what's a web accelerator and how do I turn it off?

Update 2:

I know what you mean, Omer. I haven't been able to even access the homepage for over a week now.

    Don't worry the same exact thing is happening to me. I tried looking for a solution myself and found your question here instead. Just know that it's not just you. Still, it could be just me and you plus a select few people. I too am using the Mozilla Firefox Internet browser. Videos are suddenly not loading or showing up and I keep getting that error:

    Http/1.1 Internal Server Error

    Update: I can't even get onto YouTube anymore, it's just an error now. It could be a virus, I know my computer already has some viruses because we didn't purchase the anti-virus program.

    There is no clearly-defined cause and resolution to

    this basic error message. The way I understand it

    is that it's most likely a temporary communication

    breakdown between your computer and someone's

    server -- either your ISPs, YouTube's or any route

    that your "uplink" might take. That's why it's a "1.1"

    -- nobody really knows.

    Here's what I was able to find for you on Microsoft's

    support website. I have also included for you the full

    URL address, followed by its direct link.

    I hope that my answer has been at least helpful 4U.

    CAUSE

    This issue can occur because the Hypertext Transfer

    Protocol (HTTP) 1.1 is used with Internet Explorer 5

    and later to gain access to OWA, and the HTTP 1.1

    protocol is not supported by all firewalls. If the HTTP

    1.1 protocol is not supported by the firewall, certain

    packets from the client are blocked and you receive

    the error message in the "Symptoms" section of this

    article.

    RESOLUTION

    To resolve this issue, implement a firewall solution

    that supports HTTP 1.1 packets.

    WORKAROUND

    Modify the firewall so that the firewall passes all the

    HTTP packets regardless of the protocol
