Can no longer move a new tab into Pinned App section in FF17

After the update to FF17 I can no longer move a new tab into the Pin As App section without first pinning the tab. I liked how it worked before, where if you put it to the front or between 2 pinned tabs it would just pin itself and place it where you told it to... Is there an option to restore this? If not, no big deal, more of a minor annoyance really.

hello andvarix, the drag&drop behaviour for tabs has changed in firefox 17 - they now move within the tab strip while being dragged. unfortunately the behaviour that you're now observing seems to be a somewhat intentional by-product of this change, it is unlikey that this will be fixed soon. you'd have to resort to the usual method of right-clicking a tab & select to pin it as app tab.

for reference see bug #787897 (please don't post in bug reports).
