Affected versions:
Nightly 71.0a1 (2019-09-18)
Beta 70.0b7

Affected platforms:
Windows 7/10

Steps to reproduce:

  • Launch Nightly and Beta
  • Go to any video hosting sites, such as youtube
  • Play a video and toggle it in the PiP window
  • Mute the video by clicking on the PiP indicator icon from the tab

Expected result:
The PiP indicator icon should change to a muted version, as it can be observed for the "Mute tab" icon.

Actual Result:
PiP indicator icon remains the same, the user has to actually listen to the sound in order to know if it's muted or not.

Hey JSON_Voorhees, was this an intentional choice, to have the PiP indicator override the tab muted state?

I thought I answered this, sorry.

It was intentional, we talked about showing the audio indicator icon on hover, so that users could still mute the tab it if was pinned.

¡Hola y'all!

Just noticed that the mute indicator obscures the favicon.

Should this be a separate bug or is this one it?

Alice0775 suggested this userChrome.css over at :

.tab-icon-sound[pictureinpicture][muted] {
fill: #aaaaaa !important;

PiP is getting really pretty lately. Thanks y'all for the continued work on it.

Hi alex_mayorga,

This is intentional behaviour - when using PiP, we want to make it more obvious how to mute the whole tab, so we're re-using the favicon overlay toggle from when the tab is pinned.

The Proton interface changed things dramatically, and now we show a "Picture-in-Picture" label under the page title when there's a video in PiP. I think we can close this one out as INVALID now.
