1. Get uBlock Origin
1. In Adblcok Plus

2. Right-click on the left or right of the message and select block element (or you can just type ##.alerts-wrapper in the pop-up window)

3. Press "create".

Well looks like the final days for classic youtube... you'll be missed my friend.

Google has announced that it will kill off the classic YouTube desktop interface in March 2020. This script will probably stop working!

Important! It looks like this script is starting to fail for some people. I have a feeling that the new youtube experience is coupled to your youtube account, since classic seems to work when you are logged out. I can't fix this issue unfortunately.

You can try to force classic youtube by changing your User-Agent (source):

* Install a user-agent extension like User-Agent Switcher for Chrome or Firefox
* Set your user agent to googlebot
* Tick 'override domain'
* Keep this script

Method described above not works any more. Here somebody recomends to use Good Old YouTube Firefox addon. It works for me for now.
