How do I combine two browser windows?

Posted

Often, one of my tabs will escape the current page and make its own page. How can I return that to a tab in the window/page I'm using and how do I prevent this?

A very slight downward movement when clicking on a tab will cause it to "tear-off" into a new window. You can drag the tab back to the original window.

To stop the "tear-off" behavior, you can install this add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/12276

Ah, okay. Dragging the *tab* to another window is how to do it. I have been trying to drag a stray window to another window, which doesn't work. Thanks!
