Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to http://youtube.com/html5 and enable the HTML5 demo.
2. Copy some text from anywhere.
2. Go back to YouTube, play a video of your choice, right click on it and select "Copy Video URL".
3. Open a new tab and paste the copied URL.
The copied URL is pasted in the new tab.
Nothing is pasted in the URL bar (not even what was copied in step 2). The same behavior is encountered also for the other copy options: "Copy video URL at current time", "Copy embed HTML" and "Copy debug info".
The issue is not reproducible on the latest Nightly and on the latest Aurora.

This is also reproducible also on Firefox 19.0.2. Is there any chance that this gets fixed on Firefox 20? Should I keep working on the regression range?
This is almost certainly not an issue that would cause a fix to be uplifted to FF 20 before release or cause a chemspill.
However, we should probably note it as a known issue.
Not worth tracking, still considering a relnote.

The issue is also reproducible on Firefox 12. On the previous Firefox versions < than 12 the selection in the copy dialog was not done and was impossible to do any copy actions.
The issue was fixed in Firefox 21.0a1:

"Copy Video URL" doesn't work in Chrome either. I'd guess this is a bug in YouTube's code.

Copying the video URL works for me in Chrome 26.0.1410.43 m.
Indeed "Copy Video URL" does now work in Chrome. It also now works for me in [Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:23.0) Gecko/20130402 Firefox/23.0].
I guess YouTube fixed their bug.
