I have a firebox X750e with firmware 11.2.1
For some reason youtube is being blocked and I would like to unblock it.   I know its not a flash issue because this happens for everyone.  The error I get is

"An error occured please try again later"

I know its being blocked at the firebox because when i take the laptop home it works fine no issues.  I cant for the life of me figure out where the former network administrator would have explicitly put a block site for youtube.  
What I have done is gone into the Http-proxy and made sure i added youtube to the exception list saved it to the advice but still ...could not enter youtube without getting the error.

Can someone please help me out?

Can you post sanitized logs from Watchguard system manager when youtube is blocked; it would give some clue as to what is happening.

As a workaround, we can configure outbound connection from internal machines to youtube using HTTP packet filter instead of HTTP proxy service; and this would get the traffic through.

Thank you.

I figured it out by adding my ip address to the exception list on the http rule.  Thanks for your help
