Site icons can already be dragged and dropped from the URL bar. It would be nice to do the same with the site icons in the tabs.

This bug is a duplicate of bug 110546. (I just finished marking my own bug 156235 as a duplicate.) Unable to mark as duplicate (or mark on status whiteboard) since I have insufficient privileges. Somebody?

Actually, why would we restrict it to just the site icon? Why not be able to drag the whole tab, and when it's dropped in the bookmarks manager, sidebar panel, or personal toolbar, extract the relevant bookmark information? This gives a much larger area to drag and fits in nicely with proposals for the ability to rearrange tabs, drag them out to create a new window, and drag them over to a new window.
Comment 4 (dragging the whole tab sounds) like a great idea to me, especially since there are some bugs floating around that want to do away with the tab site icon in one fashion or another. Adding D&D for this function would, indeed, help in the codebase for other D&D functions.
This bug should block bug 126299 too ! Reply to comment 4 (and 5): See bug 126299 for bugs about your other suggestions.

I like the extract relevent info idea. But basically, tabs must first become drag and droppable, which means bug 105885 needs to be dealt with first. After that, this bug should be used to move relevent information in (comment 4) and as such would also deal with part of bug 102132 (dropping a tab to the tab bar of a new window would move the tab etc). But those two bugs are relevent to this one. If this bug is headed where comment 4 wants it to, the subject line should be changed to something like "Make tabs drag and drop able, paste relevent info". Unfortunately, such a bug would likely not be implemented in the near future, so maybe we should just stick with the reporter's idea.

I don't believe this bug belongs in "Core" since everything comment #4 asks is currently implemented in Firefox 1.5b1. If this is still an desired enhancement for the Seamonkey project, then either this bug's product field should be changed accordingly or it should be resolved as WORKSFORME/FIXED and a new bug report against Seamonkey filed. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rev:1.8b5) Gecko/20050928 Firefox/1.4
The movement of tabs themselves is being handled by bug 105885 (see comment 10). (I made a stupid comment 3 three years ago when I didn't know better - it confused the issue. Comments 4 and 5 are somewhat of a red herring to this bug, even if related.) This is specifically about the tab site *icon* being being dragged and dropped from a tab to the tab bar - just like the icon can be dragged and dropped from the URL to the tab bar. Not moving it, but copying it. Even if this can be considered to be partially fixed (by Firefox -> Core) it's not fully fixed (Seamonkey -> Core). Bugs that are filed under Core and then only fixed under one product are normally not reassigned based on that.
I think this bug needs to get closed, as it is fixed long ago, I think. You can drag the tab itself to the bookmarks/bookmarks panel.
This is a SeaMonkey bug.
