Tabs in Brave in Wayland mode cannot be be reordered by dragging. It does not matter if the tabs are oriented horizontally or vertically. This is also present in the current beta and nightly builds. I took a video of what I am describing, but I can’t upload the attachment because I am a new user. It should be self-evident in testing.
The tabs do not pop out into their own windows, they just animate a little as if they were being picked up but otherwise don’t move.
How can this issue be reproduced?
Install the current stable build of Brave. In my case I tested with brave-bin, brave-beta-bin, and brave-nightly-bin on Arch from the AUR.
Navigate to brave://flags and set the “Preferred Ozone Platform” to “Wayland”.
Open multiple tabs and attempt to reorder them by dragging.
I should be able to use Brave in Wayland mode and still reorder my tabs by dragging them.
Another nicely detailed report — thank you. I’m curious if you have any other chromium based browsers you might be able to test the behavior in? Curious if this is related to the Wayland mode/flags specifically or if it’s the way Brave interacts with them.
In the meantime I will include this report with the last one you left for the Linux team to review.
Good idea. I just tested this against Chromium Version 113.0.5672.126 (Official Build) Arch Linux (64-bit) (pacman -S chromium). Tabs cannot be dragged in Wayland mode there either, must be an upstream Chromium issue.
