There's new feature in Opera 11.01 called tab stacking. It helps you to hoard tabs.

It works for (and annoys) me in Opera (11.01 build 1190) under Win32, but somehow doesn't appear in the same build for Linux.

Does anybody know how to disable tab stacking?

I'd like to know how to do this too. Maybe someone found a way since 2011 ? :D – Alex May 27 '12 at 13:01
@Alex: How does this feature affect you negatively? From what I can tell, the use of the feature seems to be completely optional. Unless you accidentally drag tabs onto each other I guess. – Oliver Salzburg May 27 '12 at 13:10
yes, that's the problem. you can easily drag the mouse accidentally on the tabs and you get them stacked :| – Alex May 27 '12 at 13:14
@Alex: OK; after looking around for 20 minutes, I'm sure there is still no (built-in) way to do it. And Opera's developer portal is too slow for me to look up if it can be done through extensions. Sorry :( – Oliver Salzburg May 27 '12 at 13:33
@Alex Yes as I have make a deep search on it and check the opera community too but there is no way yet. – avirk May 27 '12 at 13:42

I'm pretty sure that there is not a way to disable tab stacking, although the developers would probably give the option in a future release.

It's been nearly two years since Opera introduced Tab Stacking. (It was introduced in Opera 11 - released Dec. 16, 2010.) Currently, there is still no option (or an extension) that will disable it. Opera's stance on Tab Stacking remains the same. – galacticninja Nov 28 '12 at 6:05

The best thing that I've found is this patch by DitherSky:

You can try it with different opera builds. Tab stacking removal works for me in Opera 11.62 win32.

Yep, there's no way. For future reference, try the preference editor (about:config). It has just about every setting you can change.

I think, You can't disable it,

Tab stacking only works when dragging a tab onto an other, and when you drag a little further it switches places, just like in older builds. Tab stacking is nice function, but sometimes it's really annoying.

I think the best options would be to make tab stacking available while holding some modification key - e.g. Ctrl + drag'n'drop.
