In vertical tab, the area after the separator can't be drag and drop anymore

Iron Contributor

In vertical tab, the area after the separator which includes new tab button can't be drag and drop anymore. I have no idea why that is disabled in both dev and canary as they are very useful for productivity. Not to mention that in horizontal tab, the function still there. I had made some feedback about this for a while now but haven't seen any change to canary yet.

This is the area I meant. 


And this is the function I meant. 


As you can see in the screenshot above you can't drag and drop in the latest version of Dev and Canary. Please @Eric_E tell this to the dev team, because this is a loss in functionality and productivity. 



I agree. This is a very useful function. Dragging and dropping a link in this free-space is very efficient when one has many items to open in new tabs. Since I updated EDGE last week, I cannot drag into this free-space.




Since I updated EDGE last week, now I have to drag into the tight space between open tabs. This is very inefficient and time consuming compared to dropping in the free-space.





Thank you
