Moving tabs within a multitab window

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.”

True.

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Click and hold mouse pointer on a tab.
  2. Then attempt to move the tab to a new position.
  3. A new browser window is immediately opened with the tab that was needed to be moved.

Expected result:

Brave Version( 1.34.80):

Additional Information:

I’m on 1.34.80 and see this behavior.

Hello.

Since I reported this bug, Brave has been updated 1.34.80 and it still exists.

There has been a Bug Report, 321471 (Unable to reorder tabs (Arch Linux KDE) for the same error, and within the replies is the folllowing:

Using Linux Mint 20 here. After installing my updates this morning I ran smack into this weirdness and only found this page addressing the problem. I typically have 10-20 videos open in tabs simultaneously and being able to rearrange them left-to-right from longest-to-shortest in length is very helpful to me. Losing this ability was maddening until I found your workaround. Thanks for that, at least. I agree, though, being able to rearrange my tabs should not be dependent upon that obscure and unrelated setting.
