Firefox for Android has the same issue when using Youtube's mobile site. See bug 1355407.
This is a change made by youtube themselves. Once the pageVisibility of a webpage changes it pauses the video. The pageVisibility is set to "hidden" when the tab is minimized or when the app is closed. This stops the vieo.
