I used to be able to drag tabs in Internet Explorer, and even drag and drop tabs beteen different top-level Windows. For some reason this stopped working and now I am unable to drag tabs.

Is there any configuration setting that enables / disables this feature?

My checking did not turn up a setting for disabling the ability to drag a tab. You can try resetting IE back to default and see if that rectifies it. Hit Alt-X to enter the tool menu, go to Internet Options -> advanced -> and click the reset button on the bottom.

I found out that hitting "ESC" fixes the issue. At least until the next time.
