I am a little puzzled as to why SeaMonkey does not have an easy way to move a tab to a new window. (I am speaking, at least, of SeaMonkey 2.46 [64-bit] on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.) In FF (and PM, and many other browsers), when you right-click on the tab you get the command "Move to another window", but this is lacking in SM. In FF and other browsers, you can also drag a tab away from a window into a new window.The extension Tab to Window adds some of this functionality, by at least adding the context-menu command (and a command in the File menu). However, the extension does not add the ability to tear away a tab.

So would it be possible for future releases of SeaMonkey to add this functionality? (Both as commands and as the tear-away ability).

> tear-away

You should be able to do that.
(In SeaMonkey, not sure if it actually "tears" or if it removes from one, opens in another?)
Fire 750, bring back 250.

As soon as bug 191752 "Move Tab to New Window" option in tab bar context menu is fixed.

Or maybe the
Write front-end code to use backend Drag & Drop tabs between browser windows functionality.
bug mentioned in Comment 15.

I think not. Needs tabbrowser enhancements and a dev with some time at hand.

Try the Duplicate This Tab extension.
But then again, I may be wrong.
