Thanks for reaching out!
Perhaps I’m misunderstanding the issue/steps above but I’m unable to reproduce this on macOS - is the video an accurate as far as to reproduce the behavior?



Yes, that is the correct behaviour, In my case the the outcome is a bit different. I’ll attach a video to illustrate. (I updated to version 0.60.47 Chromium: 72.0.3626.119 and the issue persist, os is 10.14.3)



Apologies for the late response.
So I tried testing this in a variety of ways - opening as many (and more, and less) tabs open as you did, having the pinned tab in focused before grabbing/dragging the window, having the to-be-dragged tab in focus when moving out of the window – Still unable to reproduce.

It may be something isolated to your setup. Is there anything else unique about your system/setup? Multiple monitors, an 3p downloaded App that interacts with the browser, etc? Also, I don’t see any in the video you shared but do you have any extensions installed and currently active?



see, well I don’t think there’s anything special with my setup, I tried rebooting and I don’t have any extension installed. I’ll try to reinstall the software, see what’s up.
Anyways, thanks for the ultra responsive support! I’ll update the thread if I find a solution.
