How do I prevent draging a tab from creating a new window?

Every so often, I click on a tab a little too long and move the cursor. Firefox takes this as 'dragging the tab' and opens the tab in a new browser window. I want to disable / prevent this.

There is no way to prevent or disable this apart from increasing the height of the Tab bar (Customize: Density: Tablet).

You can look at this extension.

I don't want to disable it, I want to change the sensitivity of it. Disabling a useful extension, because it requires a fix is the equivalent of ceasing to drive my truck, because it needs an oil change.

What should I set this to, to make it work?
