Can I disable moving tabs to a new window by dragging and dropping them?

Firefox has a tendency to want to move tabs to a new window when I click on them while my mouse is moving, even slightly. Is there any way to increase the movement threshold (change the distance the tab has to be before it is converted to a new window) or to disable this completely?

Although the following add-on is named "bug489729...", it will not be changed. I personally think that it is a great feature and I do use it occasionally. There is no way to "adjust".



You have old versions of Java Console in Add-ons > Extensions that Java did not "clean-up" when updating. You can safely and easily remove them. See the instructions:
