Standard browser doesn't allow camera use

I recently tried to use webqr.com (a javascript/html5 based QR code reader) with Jolla's standard browser and didn't get any image. With the Android Firefox I receive a popup asking me if I want to share/allow access to the phone's camera. After allowing it, QR code scanning is possible. Is this a bug or an intended setting?

I took a quick look at the site and it looks like it is using WebRTC to access device camera. We do not yet support WebRTC in Sailfish Browser, but it is in our plans. There is a separate question about WebRTC already at: https://together.jolla.com/question/32177/webrtc-support-in-sailfish-browser/
