The Picture-in-Picture (PiP) feature in Firefox allows you to detach a video from its webpage and view it in a separate floating window that stays on top of other windows. This way, you can continue watching a video while you navigate through other tabs or applications.

To use the Picture-in-Picture feature in Firefox, follow these steps:

  1. Ensure you have the latest version of Firefox installed on your computer.
  2. Play a video on a website using Firefox.
  3. Once the video is playing, locate the PiP icon. It typically appears in the lower-right corner of the video player. The icon looks like a small square with an arrow pointing towards another smaller square.
  4. Click on the PiP icon, and the video will detach from the webpage and appear in a floating window.
  5. You can resize and reposition the PiP window as you prefer.
  6. While the video is in PiP mode, you can control playback (play, pause, seek, etc.) using the controls within the PiP window.
  7. To exit PiP mode and return the video to its original webpage location, simply close the PiP window or click on the PiP icon again.

Note: The availability of the Picture-in-Picture feature may vary depending on the website and the video player being used.
