Rearranging Tabs

Post by MoonMadness » 2019-12-04, 16:08

Hi Peeps!

I've searched high and low through the forums, but I keeps seeing a lot of older add-on related questions, so I better start fresh.
Keep in mind that I've tried a new profile, I've installed Pale Moon x64 fresh on Windows and have only used v28.7.2 on this particular system. I've also disabled all add-ons as well. Nothing seems to change. I've even renamed my userChrome.css file

I thought I recall being able to drag tabs and rearrange the order of them. I'm not able to do that at all. When I first inslalled FastDial new tab add-on, I swear I was able to drag the favion to the home button, and set the FastDial page as my home page. What stopped that functionality?

Restart PM into Safe Mode & see if you can then drag your tabs.

No I was not able to, nor was I able to on a new profile. To be triple sure, I used a new profile and with safe mode. I loaded Pale Moon with the -p option.
Thanks though.

Edit #1:
Just to add to the second part of the issue, I tried dragging the "Start.me" page on the new profile, while in Safe Mode, and put it overtop the home button. No go.

Edit #2:
Also, I downloaded an older portable build (v28.7.0), and ran it from a different folder. New profile too. Can not drag tabs, nor can I drag links into the tab bar.

Now you've got me confused.

Explain further what you're trying to do?

This particular topic happens to be the 5th tab in this window.
I can drag this tab, left, right, & drop to whatever position - on the tab bar, that I want to - in this window.

And you're looking to do ... ?

That's exactly what I'm trying to do.
(There was also a sub-issue but I'll leave that until later - it just seemed to be related)

Close the thread and lock - Happy News!

I logged out and back into Windows - it all works
VERY Weird! Sorry Everyone, but thanks for the help TheRube :)

Usually I would put that advice up there with "Scan for Vrusses and Defrag your Drive". I usually would like tho think there's more "meat" to a problem.
Anyhow, logging off and back in worked, so I'm happy.
