This has been an issue for awhile now on Windows. Just updated to the latest Brave (Version 0.57.18) and it appears to be worse.
Previously, I’d often find myself creating a new window when the tab gets torn off accidentally. Then I have to close the window, then re-open last closed tab. Annoying.
Now it does it almost every time!! I barely click the poor thing and BOOM. New window.
Tabs are simply too easy to tear off. Any of the following would be a welcome addition:
- A setting that allows you to adjust the sensitivity range of the tear off. (I’d suggest extending it to twice current value. Just a slight movement and I get a tear off.)
- A setting to turn off tearing entirely.
- Allow us to drag the newly created window back to the previous window’s tab. (This is the most intuitive and I find myself doing this even when I know Brave won’t let me.)
It’s definitely a Brave only thing. Firefox doesn’t. Opera doesn’t. And not even that OTHER browser.
