Hovering over YouTube videos will not play your video like it does in Google Chrome.

Can anyone confirm that we have the ability to hover over the video and play the video as with Goggle Chrome? Do we have this functionality in Firefox?

Hi Vagner, Google doesn't send the extra image data to Firefox users. I have dug around in the data retrieved by the page to see whether it is available to show in the correct location, but it isn't there at all.

I could imagine this is for competitive reasons but for all I know, they have some technical reason. You could pose the question on their forums and see if they'll explain why Firefox users can't have this nice thing.
