Please let me drag my window

After years of Chrome, I'm giving up. I'm going back to Firefox but I see that in the latest version the tabs across the top prevent me from moving my window around (unless I go to the far upper right or left corner of the browser). WHY? I have a lot of tabs open, and I need to easily move the browser window around. I don't understand developing a browser that prevents it.

Please go back to letting us move the browser around more readily.

Hey thanks! Ivan

Hi Ivan, when the window is resizable, it generally has a good-sized area (wider than a button) at the far left before the first tab and on the right between the "+" button and the minimize button. They don't seem too far away on my monitor, but it's just HD and not super hi-res.

Firefox can also add "drag space" above the tabs; there's a checkbox for that in the Customize screen. See: Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars. What do you think is that useful?
