Problem on screenshot. How to DISABLE or REMOVE this picture-in-picture??? Sorry if this is not Firefox update.

Chosen solution

ArcherX said

Yeah, thanks, I tried to disable all those options but no luck.

Hello ArcherX,

Probably a rhetorical question, but after you changed the values of those prefs, did you then close and restart Firefox in order for the change(s) to take effect  ?

Screenshot here. It didn't uploaded in first try.

Nightly! So fun! Note that I do not have Nightly, so I can't test this myself.

Try these preferences and see what combination does what you want, or whether we need to look for some others:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful or accepting the risk.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste pict and pause while the list is filtered

I think this is for the toggle control:

(3) Double-click the media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.video-toggle.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

I think this is for all PIP functionality:

(4) Double-click the media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

Apparently PiP is only enabled on Windows.

#if defined(NIGHTLY_BUILD) && defined(XP_WIN)
pref("media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.enabled", true);
pref("media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.video-toggle.enabled", true);
#else
pref("media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.enabled", false);
pref("media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.video-toggle.enabled", false);
#endif
pref("media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.video-toggle.flyout-enabled", false);
pref("media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.video-toggle.flyout-wait-ms", 5000);

i have 67.0.1 and this PiP is enabled. checking about:config doesn't show "'media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.enabled".

how to disable PiP then?
