Tab Mover is a Firefox Addon for quickly moving tabs between windows via the context menu. It can move tabs between two normal windows, two windows in incognito mode and from a normal window to an window in incognito mode. Since it is not possible to directly move tabs between normal windows and windows in incognito mode, Tab Mover can perform the equivalent of moving a tab by closing and reopening such tabs in another window.

Usage

In order to move a tab between windows, open the tab context menu by clicking on the tab using the right mouse button, then open the submenu named "Tab Mover", and finally select a window from the submenu named "Move to Window".

In order to close a tab in a window in incognito mode and to reopen its URL in a normal window or vice versa, open the tab context menu by clicking the tab using the right mouse button, then open the submenu named "Tab Mover", and finally select a window from the submenu named "Close and Reopen in Window".

When using Firefox version 52 or earlier the "Tab Mover" submenu is located in the page context menu instead of the tab context menu. The page context menu can be opened by clicking anywhere on a page using the right mouse button.
