I tried to find YouTube videos I wanted to watch at home while out of the house on my tablet. I used my Gmail account to email the links to them to my other email address I read at home. When I got home and opened the emails and clicked on the links I'd copied on my tablet they did not work at all. They did not get me to the video on YouTube, they got me to YouTube's home screen, and that is not at all what I expected, or wanted. Why doesn't this work?

I installed Firefox on my tablet, and copied the links with that, but when I pasted them into an email on my Gmail account and sent them to my sbcglobal.net account they didn't work. They didn't get me to the video I wanted. That really sucks, and why is that happening?

The upshot is if I check my sbcglobal.net mail on my tablet and see the same email, and click the link in it, it DOES get me right to the video, but not if I do it on my Mac at home... What the...????

I can then forward that email to my Gmail account, and the link in it works. But links copied from YouTube in Firefox on my tablet, or Chrome on my tablet, and sent to my main mail account at sbcglobal.net will not work. I really don't get it....

nothing on this earth can drive you up the walls quite like a computer....
