Is there a way to have Firefox Picture in Picture open in different corner than bottom Right?

Posted

I recently just learned about Firefox Picture-In-Picture just a few days ago after trying several add-ons that only opened video in a New Window. Which does no go because if you are working on a page or reading News on window the Newly openly Video Window would go to the background. So I ignorantly clicked Firefox Feed Back and sent them a message about not having a Video Overlay Option.

But now, I am wonder if there is option to select or in (about:config) to change location position the PIP opens and if there is size controls that one can select size of the PIP screen to open to regularly?

Looking at the options in about:config for picture in picture (I searched "picture" while in about:config to pull these up), I do not see an option to adjust the default opening location from the bottom right, or to adjust the default size. It'd be great if it just remembered the last size you made it. This would be good feedback to submit to Firefox though!

Not exactly the same problem but the "picture in picture" is coming up in directly underneath the carousel direction in a scroller which is really awkward. We have used this approach on a lot of sites. If we cannot move it, can we turn it off in specific circumstances? Not really sure of the benefits of this as it is only happening when we have video content in the scroller and I cant see why they would want to open this in another window when they can just max screen it?
