    Disable picture-in-picture annoyance?


    Picture-in-picture pop-outs? I never used to see this annoyance until a little while ago. Is it something incorporated in Windows 10? I don't see any way to switch it off in my browsers. Can it be disabled within W10?

    If you go to about:config in Firefox and toggle one of these below it should turn off

    Code:
    gfx.webrender.picture-caching	true	
    media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.audio-toggle.enabled	false	
    media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.enabled	true	
    media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.keyboard-controls.enabled	false	
    media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.video-toggle.always-show	false	
    media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.video-toggle.enabled	true	
    media.videocontrols.picture-in-picture.video-toggle.flyout-enabled

    Those are 'Floating Videos', you have to disable them per site, it's a bit complicated.

    I do not know how!

    I just had a brainwave! I highlighted it with the UBlock Origin eve dropper and zapped it! I have no idea how permanent that will be, if it will need doing on every page but I'll report back.

    Not sure you can globally block the mini-window for all sites/all browsers.
    But Pic-in-Pic? FF uncheck this:

    Or in any site with one, right click the mini-window and "hide"
