    Is there any way to disable this %#%$ detach/tear off tabs misfeature? Any about:config option or something?

    While switching tabs using mouse (clicking ot tabs) it is enough to move a tab a little, then cursor changes to crossed O and when you drop it you get
    another f****g window. After some time you end up with 10+ new windows. What a mess.

    The over sensitive “tear off tab” behaviour is driving me nuts as it creates new windows when I don’t want it to. Any way to disable this?

    I am always happy when five-digit bugs get resolved :)

    I just want to reiterate the comments about disabling the tab tearing. In its present state it is way to sensitive to misclicks and becomes extremely annoying after awhile. A way to turn it off would be splendid :)
