Give us an auto-PIP option that enables PIP automatically when I change from a tab that is showing a video to another tab. When going back to the original tab and that video source is shown, disable it again.

When multiple video sources are available, make it so that the last viewed tab with a source is shown in the auto-PIP. It should also be possible to have multiple PIP instances open (like it is now) but the ones that are enabled manually should also be disabled manually.

automatic picture-in-picture activation

You are currently watching YouTube, but you can open the next tab and the picture in picture will open automatically. There is such a function in the Yandex browser and I would like it to be in FireFox

Add an option to have picture-in-picture automatically enable when changing to a different tab

The last browser I used had this feature where if a video was playing and you clicked a different tab, the video would continue playing in the picture-in-picture view. When you changed back to the original tab that was playing the video, it would automatically disable picture-in-picture as well. I know some people wouldn't like this so an option to have it enabled/disabled would be handy.

@asafkoHi! It is 2023 now. 🙂 Do you have any plans about adding this request in backlog this year?

Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.


We are planning to roll this out as a setting some time this year if it proves successful in an experiment.

Hey all,

Here with some good news...

This is currently being worked on so we are upgrading the status to "In development"—check out @asafko's post in this thread for more info and stay tuned for updates 😀


Making moves

Awesome, can I also suggest that PiP activate when scrolling down the page (aka when video goes out of view ). The Enhancer for YouTube addon does this, and it also pops the video back into its home when you scroll back up!

Please add this, even Opera has it.. and fix media keys on Win 7 while you're at it.
