Why the Disable Picture In Picture attribute in the Firefox Browser not work ?

This is the Firefox browser to control it and let the user to manage this option, not the website.

This player is a player that I have been looking for for a long time, it is a more user friendly player with better features. I hope that when a Pro version is released, an option for VAST ads and an option to add more links for video series in a player will be added. so that users can watch more than one video in one player. Nice job
