WebM support in Firefox is not even fully landed in trunk (which will
end up as FF4). I'll try to offer FF builds with that feature in OBS
but I don't see anything officially available for 11.3.

Firefox 4 beta is partially (mozilla-xulrunner20) in Factory now and Firefox
will be updated to use it when 4.0b7 is released.

#2: Vincent Untz (vuntz) (2010-08-25 10:03:06)
libvpx is in multimedia:libs and being pushed to Factory.
GStreamer support will be in Factory soon too.

+ #4: Vincent Untz (vuntz) (2010-12-07 11:03:16)
+ It's in GStreamer and in Firefox 4, both in Factory => done.
