Sometimes rearranging/detaching tabs no longer works. I have restarted my browser in troubleshoot mode and the issue persists. I would like to help while I'm currently in this state if at all possible.

Version: 93.0 Windows version: 10 21H1 (though this has existed before this one as well) browser.tabs.allowTabDetach is true

What happens when you try to detach a tab? For example, it simply stays on the bar, it moves left-right, it adds a bookmark, etc.

I assume the long way still works: right-click the tab > Move Tab > Move to New Window

It doesn't move at all. It's like the tabs are no longer responsive, except the right click menu still works (your alternative suggestion of moving to new window works).

For what it's worth, my computer went to sleep, and when it woke the functionality was working again. I don't consider this solved, but I'm no longer able to provide any live logs/diagnostics.

That is odd because if there was some glitch before sleep, why would sleep help?! Hmm...
