Why Firefox doesn't show a screencast while remote debugging, as Chrome does?

Hi. I use Firefox from long long years and I love it so much. The only thing Chrome does better is that while you are using remote debug to debug an app or a mobile website, Chrome shows you a screencast of the connected device and you can interact with the app or the website directly through your mouse: you can select an element hovering and clicking, exactly like you do debugging a desktop website. This is extremely useful and I'd like to get this even in Firefox and I'm wondering why I can't. Can someone explain why and if we can hope this feature will be added in the next future? I add 2 images to clarify what I mean :) Thank you

It's probably https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1492738 so not much work has been done about it.

Thank you for your answer TyDraniu. Sadly, it looks like I'll still have to open Chrome when I'll need such a feature.
