Tabs Are Too Easy to Tear Off

windows

#1

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. :rofl:

Now it does it almost every time!! :sweat_smile: I barely click the poor thing and BOOM. New window. :joy:

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. :upside_down_face:

Hi @Yet_Another_Username,

Can you share your Brave version, OS, and a record of the issue?

Thanks

Sure!

OS: Windows 7
Brave: Version 0.57.18 Chromium: 71.0.3578.80 (Official Build) (64-bit)

A very slight click on the tab can tear it off. It’s actually rather comical. If you have a bunch of tabs, trying to go from one to another will typically tear the tab off into a new window. I did it just now accidentally with the page I’m using to write this. :upside_down_face:

I had a chance to try out Brave on Mac OS today. No problems there! And again no trouble with other browsers on the same machine.
