After that, Fx opens a new browser window with the tab, while in originating window the tab is removed. This is at times (when one has to work with lots of tabs) confusing feature, because a quick click on the tab to activate it, might be not precisely a click but press, drag, release. Before that was harmless. Now that leads to the effect that time-after time instead of activating a tab, I get the tab in a new window. Most annoying part is that it's impossible to undo the operation. If I for example browse 20 pages open in tabs in chronological order and tab was moved to another window, finding original position of the tab is very time consuming. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Press mouse button on a tab. 2. Move mouse some pixels down 3. Release mouse Actual Results: Tab is moved to a new browser window. Expected Results: Nothing should have happened. Or whatever happened should be 'Undo'-able. Option A: Tab opens in a new window, but then FireFox should offers an "Undo" function for the action. Option B: Increase the dragging distance (or provide about:config tunable) used to recognize that user wants to open the tab in a new window Option C: Provide an option to disable the tab tear-off altogether.
