When dragging a tab into a new window, how do you stop it from being full screen like previous window

more options

I am wondering if it is at all possible to adjust the settings when pulling a tab into a new window. For example, if I am running Firefox fullscreen I would like the tab that I pull to be opened in windowed form. I noticed that this is typically the case when using Chromium-based browsers, but noticed that on Firefox it stays in the format as the previous window. (if already windowed the pulled tab will also be windowed) is there a way to ensure that the pulled tab will always be windowed?

I think it keeps what every setting prior tab Browser size was. I recall doing that on both Chrome and Firefox had this same effect pulling the tab out resulted in the same windows size.

I tested it on Chrome and Edge just to make sure and it doesn't make the new window full screen like the original tab, they are the same size if windowed but if I pull from one that is fullscreen the new one is a window. I am not sure if it was a setting I may have toggled at some point but as of right now only Firefox keeps the new tab fullscreen.
