Picture in picture mode for youtube in Mozilla Firefox for windows and mac

more options

Hello. I'd like to request a a feature, that I'd love to see in Mozilla Firefox for desktop (Windows, Mac and Linux). I'd like to have an option to play internet video (especially youtube) in the picture in picture mode. So that it remained displayed on my screen while I do something else. Is there any chance to get it?

Hi,

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.

If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. Your feedback gets collected by a team of people who read it and gather data about the most common issues.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.

I do not know if such an add-on is available.

I see. Thanks for the info. I couldn’t find where can I send the feedback so I asked here, hoping that someone will see it.
