I am using Safari Version 15.0, macOS Big Sur Version 11.6.

In Safari, on the left top side I can see the collapsed/pinned tabs, example:

enter image description here

In the previos Safari version, when I clicked one of the collapsed/pinned tabs, I was able to carry it into a new location. But now when I click them automatically Safari attempts to open them on a new window and I am unable to change their place.

How can I rearrenge collapsed/pinned tabs?

It now needs a longer click to trigger the rearrangement, just keep your finger pressed down a bit longer before trying to move pinned tabs :

macOS 12.0.1 Monterey Safari 15.1 updates :

Safari fixed tab rearrangement

  • I believe that macOS Monterey fixes this. I have Safari 15.1 and the behavior is not as this image shows.

Upgrading from macOS Big Sur into macOS Monterey solved the problem I was having.
