Firefox 3.5, what motion am I making that keeps popping tabs into new windows?

I updated to Firefox 3.5, (and the 3.5.1 update) on WinXP SP3 and so far like it quite a bit. Not much different, but seems faster and better.

"You are probably clicking a little too slowly (between mousdown and mouseup) with a little too much velocity, initiating a ""drag"" operation, pulling the tab out into its own window. This happens to me sometimes with Google Chrome.

It looks like this addon is the only way to manipulate this behavior, for now."

I get this with Chrome all the time. Even though I'm sure I'm doing a normal click, sometimes it thinks I'm dragging the tabs halfway across the screen. This is usually associated with heavy CPU load from flash movies on the tab.
