What is Popup Video(WebExtension)?

The 'Popup Video(WebExtension)' is a Firefox add-on, designed to provide a seamless experience in streaming Youtube and Twitch videos. With a simple right-click, this tool pops up video links into standalone windows, improving your flexibility in multi-tasking. However, due to WebExtension API limitations, the pop-up window resizable and always top features are omitted. The add-on also coordinates with other extensions, such as Foxy Gestures, for comprehensive user experiences.

Pop-up Youtube/Twitch video to standalone window.


  1. PLEASE report issue here: https://github.com/ettoolong/PopupVideo/issues Don't left any bug report or function requirement at review comment, Thanks.

    This add-on is porting from Popup Video(https://addons.mozilla.org/zh-TW/firefox/addon/popup-video/) Because of the WebExtension API limitations, I removed the below functions:
  2. Set pop-up window resizable (all windows are resizable)
  3. Set pop-up window always top


  1. Right click on Yotube video link, click [Popup video window] to popup video window.

  2. Mouse over Youtube thumbnail, click the [Popup video window] icon to popup video window.
