A few suggestions:
1.) Add a keyboard shortcut
2.) Add options for putting the popup on the left or right side of the screen -- not just in the corners. I use this extension most when I want to view web pages side-by-side, at full height.
3.) Express popup height/width options not in pixels but in fractions of a full screen. This would make the extension work consistently across monitors with different pixel resolutions, and across different machines.

Edit: There is no way to bring back the popped up window to your tabs. I suggest to have a button on top right corner.
I use AutoHotKey to fix Stay on top issue:
I use this add-on to open videos and play them while browsing. I know there is Popup Video(WebExtension), but here is why I don't use it:
1- the video does not resume from where it was.
2- you can't go back to the tab and resume from where you stopped (currently I have the same issue with Popup Window too, but I hope that would be fixed.
3- it is not seamless, but i assume that is Mozilla fault too, though, I think if Popup video worked like popup window it would've been more seamless and can support more site. I zoom out to make the window smaller for Facebook videos, but that ruin my other Facebook tabs, so take that in mind.
I used the similar feature on Opera. Try it and see how amazing it is. Even when you popped out a video you will see it's playing on the main tab and on the popped video simultaneously, which I assume it is basically mirroring the video portion. it is seamlessly fast.
to sum it, popup window is better than Popup Video(WebExtension), and of course you need AutoHotKey for both of them, otherwise, it is pointless. oh, Popup Video(webExtension) is much much better than Min Vid... I think
Thanks for your hard work <3
- by amon, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5This wonderful extension is almost a replacement for Chrome's app windows: you can run webapps in their own window, as if they were a native app and not a browser tab. The pop-out window has none of the browser GUI (address bar, tab bar, bookmarks), just the plain content. I was searching for something like this for so long!
Remember to enable the "Tab menu item" so that you can move a tab directly to a popup window :)
While the extension is quite young, it already works very well. I've looked at the source code and it's all very reasonable. The only thing that could be improved is more locales (as of v0.0.4, only en and zh_TW are supported).
