Use a newer build of Firefox. This is fixed in the Deer Park branch

Ahh. Fair enough!

Don't see enough of a point to it to actually upgrade, but I'm sure it's a useful feature for some people. . .

Yes, it's useful and you do it by dragging a tab over to the left or right, then its new position is where you released the mouse button. Let's say you are a webdeveloper and want to compare a local site with one thats remote and you opened some tabs with other sites. Now you can drag the tabs position so it's easier to switch between them.
