Drag tab in firefox stopped working

I’m used to order tabs in FF dragging them or move it to another window … this has stopped working, I think after the last update (but not sure). Firefox 126.0
I can’t find any configuration to restore it.
Is there any way to do it?

This is on Leap 15.5.

Thus no Firefox 126.0. You either mistyped or you have your Firefox from somewhere else, which you then forgot to mention.

I can move tabs within a Firefox window.

126.0 comes from the Mozilla repo:

I’ve got it here and dragging tabs still works fine. There must be some specialty with your system.

You may want to check in about:config:
It should be:
browser.tabs.allowTabDetach = true
Or there’s a very simple “solution” here (OS not mentioned):

yes, it is mozilla repo
And I had the allowTabDetach set to true bit the solution you posted worked.
