Since installing Firefox 8 beta, can't move tabs around within the tab bar; can this be fixed without reverting to earlier version? Thank you.

Before moving to Firefox 8, I could drag and drop tabs within the tab bar to reorder them, which was very convenient. Since installing the first beta of Firefox 8, the tabs don't move. Should I revert to an earlier version of Firefox? If so, which one? Thank you for any help with may favorite browser. Tom

I have the same problem. Works in safe mode, though.

Edit: Disabling the Tab Mix Plus addon fixes the problem.

Disabling the Tab Mix Plus addon fixes the problem. ..

Not...!!!

You lose everything ..Ability the hoover with mouse....Tab customization..ect..ect.. Tabs drag and drop ..ect..ect...Open tabs when you point to them..ect..ect..

To temporarily correct this Problem .. You "do" have to revert to to earlier version.. and / or "wait"....Until Tab Mix plus can be updated for FF 8.

Tab Mix Plus Dev-Build 0.3.8.7pre.110917... Works fine with FF8. on my rig...Especially the function don't load tabs until selected.. Which is a major boost the Firefox 8 start-up with multitask (Tab) sessions active..

How:To:

1. Disabled Tab Mix Plus: (Add-on Section)

2. restart FF 8

3.Download install (Allow-except on pop-up) / Tab Mix Plus Dev-Build 0.3.8.7pre.110917

4. restart FF8 (If requested)

4. Enable Tab Mix Plus Dev-Build 0.3.8.7pre.110917

5. restart FF 8

I just went to the link you provided (http://tmp.garyr.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10888) and downloaded and installed the latest dev version:

...and it fixed the problem! I did not need to go through all the steps you did, just installed the addon and restart FF and done.

Thanks!

Torbutton was the the culprit. Disabled it and I can rearrange and move around tabs again.
