The HTML5 experimental version of YouTube Doesn't save our volume preference when viewing videos in HTML5. Instead it always defaults to full volume everytime a new video is loaded. Cant Firefox Save/Cache site specific Preference On HTML5 sites?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go here to enable HTML5 video in YouTube   and click join
2.load any new video (new ones will be html5 ready)
3.change volume levels.
4. load another (different) html5 video and see the volume slider in default (FULL)

Actual Results:  
The HTML5 Preference in pages aren't saved/Cached in Firefox 

Expected Results:  
User Preference on sites must be saved like the saved preference In Adobe flash videos. If HTML5 Preference is not saved and is slow/buggy, why would user switch from flash to html5?

The HTML5 in YouTube is generally very slow.

What makes you think this is a bug in Firefox? Does YouTube ask Firefox to save the volume level?
OS: Windows 7 → All
Hardware: x86 → All
Version: unspecified → Trunk
We've previously discussed this, and decided against persisting the volume level. Volume settings are most useful per-video (eg loud commercial vs quiet narration), and it would be annoying to have to constantly adjust the volume back and forth for each one.
