In Google meeting sharing screen mode, mouse cursor isn't shared

on a Google meeting, that is, a meeting created in Google Calendar that generates those automated Google meeting URLs:

when I share my screen, I also want my mouse cursor to be shared, because it's very useful to use it as a laser pointer so the audience in the meeting knows which part of the screen they should be looking at.

I couldn't find any feature at all within Firefox or inside the Google meeting settings [as the meeting is happening] to turn on my mouse cursor sharing.

On Chrome the mouse cursor is shared by default when someone shares their screen, which is desired behaviour.

It's a local problem with Firefox because other co-workers who have identical computers to mine use Chrome and I always see their mouse cursor when they share their screens. I'm on Windows 10.
