Youtube userscript or add-on recommendations?

I love YousableTubeFix for Firefox, which sets global preferences for things like preferred resolution (the most important feature to me), default player size, and whether to autoplay videos on channel pages. The problem: it's still blocking ads even though I told it not to. Could you recommend any other Youtube-preference-modifying Firefox userscripts or add-ons that have a similar purpose but without accidentally blocking the ads?

I follow a lot of people who make their living from Youtube, and who don't get paid from adblocked views. That's why it's so important to me that no ads be blocked, including pre-rolls (video ads that show up before the video), Adsense annotations, on-page ads (often found in the sidebar), etc. (This paragraph is just in case someone though I had typoed: no, I really do want the ads).
YousableTube Fix is definitely blocking at least the Adsense Annotations, but it may be letting pre-rolls show. Either way, it's still blocking one ad too many for my taste.
I previously used a userscript to set the default resolution to 720p or highest available, but it was badly-coded and caused all embedded Youtube videos to stop working, so I'd like a recommendation for a new one.
