Image to illustrate, "+24 tabs will help with choosingImage to illustrate, "+24 tabs will help with choosingImage to illustrate, "+24 tabs" is to help recognize needed window

I use at least 2 Firefox windows for work, those windows are placed on different monitors and different virtual desktops for ease of access, and kind of have different purposes (I suppose other people can group tabs using windows too).

The problem is that sometimes I need to move tabs from one window to another. Detaching a tab, opening multitasking view, moving tab to a different desktop and then attach it to the second window isn't the easiest thing.

There is an extension that helps with this - 'Tab Mover', but Firefox already has Move Tab menu, so I think that aside from moving tabs to start/end it could also offer to move them between existing Firefox windows, especially when it already offers to move tabs to a new window.

Making moves

Hello,

I also have exactly the same issue and i am frustrated. I also use two screens and both have tabs on them, and i work just like you. Sliding tabs to other monitor used to be easy, but exactly after recent update of 97.0.2. it stopped working, and all tabs became stiff and nu-movable, un-dragable, they just stay fix in their locations and i can no longer slide them around. I also need immediate help. i tried "about:config" and "detach" settings, but it still does not work... i dont use the "move tab option" in menu like you, but i always work by dragging tabs around. now it does not work...

HELP !!!

Hello,

I have similar ideas when I try to move tab to a different window, I need something to mark a window so that I could transfer that tab to the exact window I want, but Firefox doesn't support this feature, and chrome use the name of the first tab of a windows to identify that windows.
