A few days ago, we shared an article on enabling picture-in-picture mode in the Google Chrome web browser for desktop. After reading that article, many users asked the same for the Mozilla Firefox web browser. Since Firefox has an active user base, we have decided to share a detailed guide on how to enable PiP mode in Mozilla Firefox.

For those who don’t know, the Picture in Picture or PiP Mode basically changes the video configuration to fit into a small Window. Once enabled, it plays the video in a small controllable floating window. You can move and resize the floating window as per your desire to fit comfortably on the screen. The PiP mode even works when the main browser window is not active or minimized.

If we talk about the Picture-in-Picture mode of Firefox, it’s relatively easy to enable the feature on the web browser. Just make sure that you are using the latest version of the Firefox web browser.
