In common with other browsers, moving a tab within a multitab window (with 6 ‘pinned’ tabs) was simply a case of clicking and holding on a tab, and then dragging said tab to the desired place amongst other tabs. However, now clicking, holding and attempting to move the tab immediately results in the tab appearing in a new window. Returning the tab to the original window puts the tab to the right of the existing tabs and not in it’s original position.
I have looked in the settings for something that may have been reset during recent upgrades (currently 1.34.76), but I cannot see anything obvious that would cause this behaviour.
The issue can be reproduced by following the steps described in the text above.
Edit 1: Current version is 1.34.80 and the bug is still present.
Edit 2: Bug Report, 321471 (Unable to reorder tabs (Arch Linux KDE)) is the same error, and within the replies is the folllowing:
“Edit, the 2nd: Well, I got proper tab functionality back, but it meant I had to disable the “Use system title bar and borders” setting. Now I can drag tabs left and right, I can drag tabs out of a window and back in, etc.”
That work around also works for me, but as further stated:
“HOWEVER, this functionality should still have worked, REGARDLESS of that setting.”
Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Click and hold mouse pointer on a tab.
- Then attempt to move the tab to a new position.
- A new browser window is immediately opened with the tab that was needed to be moved.
