Pasting url to youtube search doesn't load until after "empty cache and hard reload"

Description of the issue:
I can go to yt homepage and search normally, but if I copy the url of the search and paste into new tab, it does not load. Also my custom search youtube from url bar with keyword doesn’t work.

If I open dev tools and refresh the page with “empty cache and hard reload” option, then it loads normally.

It does load normally if I click a link like this

I tried emptying my cache and cookies and trying again. No luck.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Copy any youtube search url and paste it into url bar of new tab

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Only the top nav bar loads partially, everything else is blank.
Image of page with no results

Expected result:
Normal complete load of page with search results showing

Reproduces how often:
