How to change the picture-in-picture default monitor?

Posted

71's new picture-in-picture feature could be useful, but I can't find any way to control which monitor the video is played on. It seems to always open on Windows' 1st monitor, which for me is almost always turned off. Of course Windows in it's infinite wisdom will not let you choose which monitor is number 1. This basically makes the feature useless. :( So, is there some setting somewhere in the about:config where I can control which monitor is default? I can't find an obvious one, at least. EDIT: I was wrong. It doesn't always open the video on the 1st monitor. It just always opens the video on the monitor to the left of the one the browser is on. :D

hi dr... Picture in Picture mode is still in development; sound is not working right now and the

bug listing on Mozilla's bug tracking 

website lists two more milestones for the feature.

The feature is not enabled by default

amd Firefox users need to make a
configuration change to enable it before they may use it.

Mozilla won't implement the Picture in

Picture WebAPI draft in Firefox at this point in time

Hey Dinushi, thanks for the response but that is not quite correct.

The feature IS enabled by default (it appeared on it's own when I updated Firefox a couple of days ago) and sound works just fine :D
