Tab dragging stops working at random times

Sometimes drag functionality stops working. I can't grab a tab to move it to another position or to a new window. (Holding left click on the tab and moving the cursor does nothing). Also, re-merging the tab with another firefox window stops working. (Dragging a tab to a firefox window from another firefox window doesn't merge them. It does nothing) I can right click on the tab and select Move to move it to a new window but dragging stops working. I have to close Firefox and start it again (sometimes twice), then dragging starts working again. This happens multiple times a day. I am on Linux Mint and the version is 126.0 (64-bit). This problematic behavior has only recently began.

Interesting... Never had that issue before.

Did you try with Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode?

Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla. Download, unzip, and run firefox-bin from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

Do you have the same issue under a different user account

What Desktop? X11 or Wayland?


Operating System: openSUSE Tumbleweed 20240521 KDE Plasma Version: 6.0.4 KDE Frameworks Version: 6.2.0 Qt Version: 6.7.0 Kernel Version: 6.9.1-1-default (64-bit) Graphics Platform: X11 Processors: 12 × Intel® Core™ i7-9850H CPU @ 2.60GHz Memory: 125.1 GiB of RAM Graphics Processor: Mesa Intel® UHD Graphics 630 Manufacturer: HP Product Name: HP ZBook 17 G6

You can also try a usb live stick of LM or another OS (wink wink) to see if you have the same issue.

X11. Like I said, it happens occasionally and I don't know the conditions to reproduce it. The problem is in a soft spot in which it annoys me but not to the point of motivating me into trying out different distros just to investigate the issue. Since I can just close and reopen the browser to fix it. I just thought maybe someone knew about this and had a quick answer. As for the other distros, I am planning to hop to a new distro, but I am waiting for the release version of the new nvidia driver(555->560) to be available so I have more options (wayland), probably by the end of summer. Yes, Suse is one of my targets. It will probably be either Arch, Fedora, Suse or Debian with nixos repos. Most likely KDE.

This problem started after I disabled the new firefox telemetry from settings. Could it be related?
