I'm not sure what happened, but the picture-in-picture extension isn't working anymore and there's a sort of "script" (see uploaded image) that shows up over the top of videos, including but not limited to the ones on YouTube. I used to be able to still use the extension by using keyboard commands at first (ctrl shift ]), but now that doesn't work either.

That worked perfectly! Thank you so much!

Note that this usually happens because of a broken or outdated language pack that doesn't support this specific string, so make sure that if you use a language pack you have a version that matches your specific Firefox version.


You can find the full installer of the current Firefox release (99.0) in all languages and all operating systems here:
