When dragging browser tabs, I often “mismove” the mouse a bit to the bottom, and end up with the tab transferred to a new window.

It seems I’m not the only one encountering this problem…

It finally got fixed in Firefox 74, with a setting browser.tabs.allowTabDetach that simply lets disabling that “detach tab to new window on drag down” behavior:

(note you can still do “right click > Move to New Window”)

I searched in Firefox source code and the feature seems to be very simple to implement:
