Apparently has Google removed the possibility to watch Youtube videos in 480p and 1080p, if you use YouTube’s HTML5 player in Firefox or Safari. That is a kinda strange move. Why is that? It still works in Chrome and the latest IE(shrugs). Are Google just evil or is that a reason for this?

This is how it looks in Chrome:
The option for 480p and 1080p is gone in both the desktop and mobile browsers, but they are there if you use the Flash player. Is this a way by Google to force users to use their own YouTube apps and Chrome? I know for example that ads doesn’t show up in the HTML5 player, but they do in the Flash player.
