Firefox 74 New Features: Use the keyboard to control video playback in the Picture-in-Picture window

Firefox’s picture-in-picture mode has been improving since version 71 was introduced, and it has been pre-positioned on Windows with a dedicated keyboard shortcut , “Ctrl and Shift”, and Mozilla recently added a mute button to mute the video in the Picture-in-Picture window. Firefox also provides settings to disable picture-in-picture switching when you find it invalid.

While the firefox 74, which is in beta, has new improvements, Mozilla now allows users to manipulate controls using the keyboard to manipulate video playback in the Picture-in-Picture window. For example, you can use the space bar to pause/play a video, use the up and down keys to increase or decrease the volume, and use the left and right arrow keys to fast-forward and backward.

The video’s picture-in-picture mode can be used on Firefox 71 on Windows and Firefox 72 on Mac and Linux, and Mozilla has also received positive feedback from users. Firefox offers features that allow users to pop video slots from a web page to a floating window and always be at the top of the window, making it easy to watch videos while doing other things, and to adjust the PIP window to the desired size when nothing else.

Unlike Chrome’s Picture-in-Picture feature, it’s not based on the Picture-in-Picture Web API, but mozilla’s browser user interface feature for Firefox.
