[GNOME] dragging a tab into the gnome menu keep Firefox in D&D mode


(Core :: Widget: Gtk, defect, P2)

Firefox 90

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Fedora; Linux x86_64; rv:90.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/90.0

Steps to reproduce:

I am using gnome-shell 40.3 and firefox 90.0.2 inside fedora 34

Dragging a tab in the upper-left gnome menu and dropping it inside the gnome shell's menu makes all the Firefox windows holding the "drag" mode and I cannot interact with them.
When I resize one of the windows, the problem seems to go away, except for the window from where the tab was dragged. The tabs from this windows won't interact anymore (I can still drag the window when touching the blank spaces).

I'm sure someone might have seen/reported this bug before, but I was exploring across some keywords and only found similar but not quite related issues. Any correction is welcome, and I'm sorry in advance.

Actual results:

All windows were stuck, holding a sort of "drag" mode.
After resizing any Firefox window, the state wears off, but the tab panel from where the tab belonged stays frozen.
Also, I don't know if it's related but I got a black screen while issuing this. The logs are "insufficient" for bug reports, according to gnome problem reporter.

Expected results:

"Drag" state should have gone as soon as the mouse press was released.
The tab panel from the window should stay interactive.

The Bugbug bot thinks this bug should belong to the 'Core::Widget: Gtk' component, and is moving the bug to that component. Please revert this change in case you think the bot is wrong.

Can you please create a screencast of the issue?

Hello Martin,
Here you go
This time, I was able to move the tabs afterwards.
If you need more info/examples i'm still available.

It seems I was wrong, and the frozen tab can be unfrozen each time by sliding another tab towards it.

Also, resizing a window works, but sliding a tab also works apparently.

I see, Thanks for the video.

It works perfectly now, both with and without the option enabled. Thanks !
