New window hangs when tab dragged off tab bar


#1

I dragged a tab off the tab bar to create a new window.

The operation never completed:

The new window displayed a totally gray screen, except for the colored ‘close/minimize/expand’ balloons in the upper left corner.

Source window showed the tab had been removed from that window.

@mk7z, this is the “dead tabs” issue we’ve seen before. This error seems present when a new tab is dragged into a new window if the new tab was still loading at the time of being dragged. But lets make sure that the issues are the same before going any further. Try the following and note whether or not the error occurs for each circumstance:

  • Open a new tab (no url) and drag it into its own window
  • Open a new tab, visit a website, make sure to wait for it to fully finish loading, then drag it into its own window
  • Open a new tab, visit a website, and before its finished loading drag the tab into its own window

Let me know what you find for each case!
