Mozilla has made available Firefox 71, which brings picture-in-picture (PIP) capabilities to Windows.
Picture-in-Picture allows a video to be contained in a separate and small window, and still be viewable whether you switch from tab-to-tab or outside the Firefox browser. To see if Picture-in-Picture is available to you, hover your mouse over the video to see a small blue “Picture in Picture” option. Once you click the option, the video will pop into its own and will always stay as the top window, allowing you to continue to watch the video even if you switch tabs. Currently, Picture-in-Picture will only be available on Windows OS. It will be available to MacOS and Linux in our next browser release in January 2020.
Firefox 71 also arrives with improvements to the browser’s Lockwise password manager and Enhanced Tracking Protection, and native MP3 decoding, plus assorted bug and security fixes. Enterprises can take advantage of a new kiosk mode that allows the use of the maximum amount of screen space for customer-facing displays.

You can download Firefox 71 from the Mozilla website.
