Google-Chrome Tabs can no longer moved

Google-Chrome Version 97.0.4692.71

Since the previous update I can no longer move (order) tabs inside a google-chrome window, so if I move a tab it opens in a new chrome window (Instance).

I don’t have google-chrome but in chromium (Version 97.0.4692.71) it seems to work as it should.

this error i got - manjaro and Endeavour OS after update

I use Brave on my Kubuntu 20.04 machine and that’s based on the same Chromium version. I see the problem OP describes.

But I can still move tabs via the keyboard (Ctrl+PgUp or Ctrl+PgDn).

chromium is still an older version as
Google-Chrome Version 97.0.4692.71


 $ chromium --version 
Chromium 97.0.4692.71 Arch Linux


maybe an issue with the Plasma Integration ext. for Google-Chrome Version 97.0.4692.71 …

Happens also in Gnome+Chrome combo

What does this say:
pacman -Q chromium

Just got this:

pacman -Q chromium
chromium 97.0.4692.71-1

I see the same issue with chromium too …
FireFox works

ok, I have updated chromium to Version 97.0.4692.71 now it works w/ chromium
but still same issue with google-chrome stable

Chromium 97 has a regression which breaks many mouse-tab interactions. The fixes are in git, but google have declined to backport them to 97. Would you mind backporting? Thank you!

FS#73307 - [chromium] cannot drag tabs


Also applies to vivaldi-snapshot, cannot move tabs either.

No issue i Brave either on my end:

Brave 1.34.80 Chromium: 97.0.4692.71

No issues here…
Version 97.0.4692.71 (Official Build, ungoogled-chromium)

That is not the official package which isn’t fixed as Google isn’t interested on backporting them

No issues for me google-chrome
Version 97.0.4692.71 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I have switched (migrated) to chromium … unfortunately chromium security updates are not as fast as google-chrome, but everything works so far!
