IceDragon not current with website changes

Specific examples:

1 - The Google+ notifications cannot be accessed on YouTube anymore with IceDragon. I have to use a different browser.
2 - ESPN comments cannot be accessed anymore with IceDragon. Again, I have to use a different browser.

1 has been a problem for a couple of months. 2 I discovered a few weeks ago.

Hi RyanJV,
If you have selected ‘custom settings for history’ under privacy, you have to allow/accept cookies from sites for the number 2 issue.
Allowing cookies is also required for YouTube to function correctly, so it might also fix the number 1 issue.

Kind regards.
