When I first installed the script, it didn't appear to do anything except refresh the page. (Latest firefox, greasemonkey) ((problem replicated on a second PC)) Cleared cookies to no avail, messed with some other settings until I found out changing the language setting at the bottom of the page made the layout go haywire, reversed the change, then promptly fixed itself. I'm really not knowledgeable in these areas, but if anyone has a problem similar to mine I suggest you start there.
In any case, thank you for the wonderful script.

This is perfect brings the old functional layout back, The new one is missing so many features i really missed like show more videos from user on the watch page, Also show only uploads on the main page.
This also removes all the google+ crap for people who could not care less about google+ like me.
Anyway thanks for this script :).
Works as advertised - not a fan of the new Youtube start page layout (then again, I'm not a fan of the CURRENT layout either). Could you write something in your userscript description telling us that the swap homepage button is on the upper right (not top left as your images say) corner? I was looking everywhere for it and nowhere in the description did it say for me to look in the top right, it only says so in the images and the images tells you the incorrect corner.

This does exactly what it says on the tin and is prefect for reverting the strange new gui of Youtube. Thanks!
I was able to switch back to the old YT layout,
but one of the most important (for me) features is missing - the "x videos" button above the video, which you can click to get a list of the user's videos in chronological order.
Here's a comparison of the old layout in Chrome (no script needed) and old layout in Firefox:
I went all day yesterday trying to figure out why the hell Youtube's homepage looked so messed up. It seemed like I was the only one and I figured it was an issue with my browser. I went through all the different troubleshooting protocols and was almost ready to wipe my entire Firefox profile and start with a new slate, but then I figured maybe there's a script that'll just change Youtube's layout to make it a little more bearable and that's when I found this! So not only did this script reassure me that I wasn't the only one, but it went ahead and fixed everything for me (although the current Youtube layout still looks horrible, at least it renders properly). Thank you!
hi is this similar to this mp3 converter script?
