Firefox 3.5 didn't have poster implemented so it definitely won't show
there. Firefox 3.6 does implement poster and it works for me. If you
look at the following page the bottom 3 videos have a poster set:


You should see the poster - press play and it goes away and the video
plays. This seems to work fine in FF 3.6 and 4.0 beta for me. If it
doesn't work for you, please report a bug.
