The PIP feature is very useful on videos. I can watch YouTube videos while navigating other websites or switching my apps as the video stays on the top.
I hope Firefox developers will add this feature on images and web content as well.

I am a graphic designer and sometimes I do medical graphics and I have to switch between Firefox and Adobe Illustrator so I can know verify my content.
If this feature is added, I will take less time than that.

Hi @AhmedZaggoudi ,

Thank you for the suggestion, I do agree it would have been a very handy feature for any dynamic content! PiP for arbitrary web content is something we've been looking into for a while, but haven't made a decision on whether to pursue it and how soon. It's a major effort on the platform side of Firefox, so need to be weighted against other priorities. I will post an update here once the team has a path forward on this.

P.S. if you have a moment to post a link or screenshot of the graphs you mentioned, it'd be really helpful for us to illustrate the use case internally. Thank you in advance!

Hi @ania ,
Thank you for your reply!

As you can see on the screenshot below, I have to resize my browser's window to see the content I am designing for. Unfortunately, there is no way to set Firefox browser to float on top of all window (unless using third-party apps). So I have to switch in between apps..

Unfortunately, there is no way to set Firefox browser to float on the top on all opened windows. (unless using third-party apps). Therefor I have to switch in between apps different times.Screen Shot 2022-05-20 at 4.16.24 PM.png
