Is there a way to drag tabs like Chrome?

November 30Hits:0
Advertisement
I recently migrated from Google Chrome to Firefox, and so far I like it. I want to be able to drag tabs like in Chrome but in Firefox, add-on or not. With Chrome, when you left click on a tab and move it vertically, the tab minimizes so that you can drag it into another instance of Chrome. However in Firefox, if I have two instances of Firefox running and want to take a tab into the other, when running fullscreen, you can't view the other instance. I tried looking for an add-on to the best of my ability but I had no luck.

Firefox does this sort of thing by default.
Tabs will
* '''drag from one window to another''' see additional notes under
*drag along the tab bar to another position
* on to the desktop to create a shortcut
** but to do that you drag the icon from the location bar not the tab
* open in a new window, to do that drag them down or use a right click option.
** note move to group option also from right click

You say
''I have two instances of Firefox running and want to take a tab into the other, when running fullscreen, you can't view the other instance.''
I assume that you mean you have two separate Firefox windows open (slightly different from two instances of Firefox)
# reduce the size if you wish to move tabs between the two windows
# drag tabs from one to the '''tabs bar''' of the other, and insert it between or adjacent to an existing tab
* note it is not possible to drag the last tab off a window. A window needs at least one tab (open a new blank tab as a workaround if you wish to move the last remaining tab)
Please post back with how you get on. It may be a little confusing using a new browser and I am not sure if I have explained the things you need to know or not.
