Additional Steps to Reproduce:
If the browser window is not full-screen/maximized when using middle mouse button it may do one of the following:
a) jumps to the next window and does not close the tab
b) jumps to next window and closes tab
c )closes tab and works properly by staying on same monitor

Additional Information:
It doesn’t matter if I use my 1080p or 1440p monitor. Same results are observed.


Thanks to both of you for reporting.
Looking into this right now.


-additional info, if I have the window not maximized, and middle click a tab, it doesn’t close it, but jumps to the next monitor over to the same x,y (instead of the relative position)

  • edit -

when I tear off a tab, and let go on new display, the main browser the tab came from jumps to that display when I let it go.


any updates? This is a deal breaker for me.


We recently updated to v0.58.21 - can (anyone) ensure that you’ve got the most recent update installed and tell me whether or not this issue still occurs?


Yes. I can confirm this is still an issue.


Thanks for getting back to me.
I just made noises about this to our QA and Desktop teams. Hopefully I’ll be back soon with some suggestions.
Just to confirm - this only happens when you middle click a tab, correct? Are there any other actions that result in this behavior?


Yes, when tearing off a tab, and moving to New window, when you drop it, the original window jumps to that display as well.
