how to turn off gesture to open current tab in new window.
I have looked in auto:config and searched for gesture. None of the results seem to match my problem so I am starting to wonder if it is a gesture. At any rate often I have a tab open and will be using the trackpad to do some things, scrolling, selecting whatever. I unfortunately happen to not keep total 100% control over where things are going and suddenly my tab is open in a new window. It seems to be caused by some two finger combination on the trackpad but not sure what.
Re: how to turn off gesture to open current tab in new window.
That document on using tabs to organize lots of websites in a single window isn't helpful to me for the following reasons:
1. I already organize lots of websites in a single window, the problem is that some of these tabs will suddenly be opened in a new window when interacting with them.
2. The section on opening a tab in a new window does not seem to be what is happening to me. It says:
"To move a tab to its own window, click on the tab and drag it below the tab strip. Or, to move a tab from one Firefox window to another, click on the tab and drag it to the tab strip of another Firefox window. "
The second method is the one I have to use to move a tab that has been mistakenly opened in a new window back to the window it should be in, so I know that works and I know that's not what's happening. The first one doesn't seem to be relevant either as my problem does not happen when I click on the tab and then drag it, rather I am interacting with the page inside the tab. For example trying to scroll, or select some text, and then it opens in a new window. It seems to me whenever it happens I have ended up touching the touchpad with a second finger. Is there some way that it could mistake it as selecting the tab, and then my normal scrolling/text selection behavior actually ends up dragging it below the tab strip? If so the document describes my problem, but it does not describe how to fix it, since I am not doing it on purpose.
IS there any way to disable the drag a tab below the tab strip opens a new window behavior?
