Loving the picture-in-picture feature. I googled to see if there was a keyboard shortcut to pop out the video and saw that ctrl+shift+] or cmd+shift+] should do the trick, but on my mac (firefox 95.0.2) the ctrl version seems to do nothing while the cmd version goes to next tab, which is redundant with ctrl+tab. I'm wondering if the cmd+shift+] shortcut is being overriden accidentally, or if there's a different keyboard shortcut for this on mac? cheers

OMG just messing around with it some more and discovered that cmd+option+shift+] works!

I remembered that to open dev tools the shortcut on windows is ctrl+shift+i and mac it's cmd+option+i, so i tried cmd+option+] and through in the shift for good measure and it worked : ) hope this helps someone from google in the future

Yes, the modifiers on Mac are "accel,alt,shift" (accel => Command; alt => Option).

See key_togglePictureInPicture.
