Why can't I move tabs in firefox

I prefer using Firefox as my default browser.

Now, about 2 days ago, something happened and I cannot move the tabs inside the browser anymore. This is a really important feature (to arrange the tabs in certain order). I've noticed I'm trying to use the other browser now instead. I've tried searching the web for an answer, but the safe mode -> check add on.s didn't resolve this problem for me.

I also re-installed the firefox, but nothing seems to help. Is this some kind of a new feature (tabs are static) or is there some kind of a setting I can use to be able to do this (moving the tabs inside Firefox)?

Hello,

The Refresh feature (called "Reset" in older Firefox versions) can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your bookmarks, history, passwords, cookies, and other essential information.

Note: When you use this feature, you will lose any extensions, toolbar customizations, and some preferences. See the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article for more information.

To Refresh Firefox:

  1. Open the Troubleshooting Information page using one of these methods:
    • Click the menu button New Fx Menu , click help Help-29 and select Troubleshooting Information. A new tab containing your troubleshooting information should open.
    • If you're unable to access the Help menu, type about:support in your address bar to bring up the Troubleshooting Information page.
  2. At the top right corner of the page, you should see a button that says "Refresh Firefox" ("Reset Firefox" in older Firefox versions). Click on it.
  3. Firefox will close. After the refresh process is completed, Firefox will show a window with the information that is imported.
  4. Click Finish and Firefox will reopen.
