v28, dragging links into tab bar does not create new tab

dunno if i'm the only one having this problem, and a quick search didn't turn up any existing topics, but it's always possible i missed something.

anyway, i can't create new tabs by dragging the link next to an open tab. thoughts?

Have you tried doing this in Pale Moon's safe mode? Or with a new profile?

seems to be tab mix plus doing it based on my "turn off everything one by one and restart" method. as to why... :think:

TMP has always been a problematic extension; it's no surprise that (despite there having been months to sort this out... :/) there are issues with the new milestone.

It's a bit worrying that TMP is problematic - certainly no good in Basilisk - and I'd drop it if there were an alternative. It is very useful.

Try Tab Mix Plus Dev-Build 0.5.0.5pre.180718a1, it should resolve this issue.
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

Well, I removed the TMP that I had and installed the version in the link.
It's giving me the 100 - 100 px tabs that I like and also making Lollipop Road look as it should (without TMP the theme isn't all the way down the sidebar); also dragging a link now works.

In Basilisk, TMP stopped the simple Restart - Basilisk.exe would stay open - and also would prevent Basilisk being opened from PM via Open With.

If this is stable I'll be happy, thank you.

If you want to open a link in a new tab, why not just middle-click it, or Ctrl-click, or Cmd-click (for Mac)?

I make extensive use of the bookmarks toolbar. Not being able to drag links to the tab bar and have the open is a ... drag.

You can middle-click (or Ctrl-click) links in the bookmarks toolbar.
