Android - Open current video in YouTube app from Firefox

Well I have another answer. There's an extension on Firefox called Open Native App, which as the name suggests, opens things in their native apps.

From its "About this add-on"

A simple extension I created after getting frustrated with my device opening native links in Firefox rather than it's native app. Creates a menu option in your Firefox menu called "Open in Native App" which will trigger the Android intent app chooser for the link currently open.
