Drag and drop tab to bookmarks toolbar not working

When I want to drag and drop a tab into a folder of the bookmark toolbars, I can't do it for some folders.

Specifically, it doesn't work for folders that are somewhat in the area of the tab preview animation that pops up when I start dragging the tab. So that is not the same folders every time, it depends on the tab location in the tab bar.

I hope that the explanation was clear enough, I did a screen record also, made it available here https://ufile.io/pikit6xo (335 kB).

Do someone had a similar issue and found a solution?

I'm in troubleshooting mode. Firefox 100, just updated, but bug was there before. Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

First, I would like to thank you for providing such clear evidence of the issue!  ;-) Try downloading another copy of Firefox from Mozilla, run it from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

Sorry for the delayed answer.

Yes the issue is all the same with another copy of Firefox from Mozilla ran from folder (freshly downloaded firefox-106.0.5 Linux 64-bit).

Are you able to reproduce ?

I just found out that you can disable the preview when dragging by setting `nglayout.enable_drag_images = false` in about:config.

It solves the issue, which confirms that the bug comes from collision with the area occupied by the tab preview when it first shows up.

The thumbnail should be offset so it's never in the way of the mouse pointer. This problem reminds me that some users have reported their context menus appears too close to the mouse pointer so items can be automatically activated when they are simply releasing the right-click that summoned the menu.

@jscher2000 I already encountered the issue you describe (e.g. VSCode issue #113175) and I don't think it is related here.

Since the link I provided for the screen record is not available anymore, I upload it here as a GIF so it remains available.

@jscher2000 I already encountered the issue you describe (e.g. VSCode issue #113175), but is seems unrelated here.

With the screen record you can understand the bug better, I put it here as a GIF as the link I provided is not available anymore.

Hi Paul, thank you for the GIF.

I don't know what causes that (I'm not able to reproduce it on Windows 10).

Try to disable showing the drag image.

  • about:config => nglayout.enable_drag_images = false

You can try Firefox from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution to see if it behaves differently.

Yes I found that as a workaround as said above.

Yes that's the first thing @jonzn4SUSE told me to do, but as I said above the issue is still there with a fresh installation from the official Mozilla server.

Are you using Firefox in Wayland as that could be a possible cause?
