Few days ago, after upgrading to the version 28.6.2 on Debian 9, I cann't see any comments on Youtube, just a ring rotates on and on.

There is no version 28.6.2. Did you get a legitimate update?

I suspect a script blocker. Using NoScript? That's no longer supported.

script blocker
I thought of that too, and before posting earlier I tested blocking, singly and together, sites that tried to connect.
Comments loaded fine even with requests blocked from, basically, everywhere but YouTube: google.com; googlevideo.com; gstatic.com; ggpht.com; ytimg.com.

Blocking YouTube itself makes style sheets not load, which is fairly dramatic (comments would be the least of concerns).
So in this case it may not be down to a script blocker.

Did you install 28.6.2(?) from a repository, or get it from Pale Moon itself?
Have you tried running PM in safe mode and seeing if the comments are still blocked?

I found out the reason. It happened, that my motherboard time had changed to the wrong, so the problem was not with the browser :)

I suggest you set up synchronization with e.g. pool.ntp.org to keep your time accurate so https connections don't break.

You know, a lot of people would consider not seeing those YouTube comments a feature, not a bug. ;)
