The Picture-in-Picture feature in the Firefox browser allows you to pop a video out of its webpage into a floating, always on top, window so you can watch while continuing to do things in other tabs or screens.
Ready to give it a try? Start by playing any video in your Firefox browser, like the red panda cubs below. Then click the blue Picture-in-Picture button to pop the video out and play alongside while you go about your business on other tabs or do things outside of Firefox. You can also grab the video with your mouse to move it around or resize it.
