Picture-in-picture not automatically enabling "always on top" functionality in GNOME

Whenever I click the PiP floating icon on video-hosting sites such as YouTube, the PiP window pops up but does not stay on top. It is immediately hidden by other windows. I always need to open the window menu and enable "Always on Top". Shouldn't this be enabled by default? Is there anything I can do to make it enable by default?

For reference, I'm using GNOME 41.1 on Manjaro Linux.

I'm not able to replicate the issue in KDE. see screenshot Can you switch to KDE and test the same steps? Try downloading another copy of Firefox and run it from the folder. Do not sign into your Firefox account and see if you have the same issue.

Come to think of it, this is probably a Wayland issue. I'll test this later when I get some time at the office, could you test whether this might be the issue too?
