How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Be in the 'first' workspace
2. Drag any app's icon from dash to the next workspace

Which application have you tried this with ? classic mode or not ?

It works fine for me with rhythmbox

Comment 3 Vitezslav Humpa 2013-05-09 11:47:47 UTC
Was happening with all apps when I was reporting. Now is a case of some apps, notably Nautilus and Firefox. Whether I am running a classic mode or not has no influence.

Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2014-03-03 20:47:00 UTC
Still a problem. Sadly, we've run out of time to fix it for 7.0. Moving to 7.1

Comment 9 Michal Domonkos 2015-05-15 13:01:38 UTC
Still an issue in GNOME-3.14.

Comment 10 Michal Domonkos 2015-05-25 12:41:55 UTC
Not reproducible with Terminal, always reproducible with Files.

Comment 11 Michal Odehnal 2018-05-16 12:52:11 UTC
Still reproducible with gnome-shell-3.26.2-5
Firefox only, Files do not spawn New Window by dragging.

Comment 12 Vitezslav Humpa 2018-06-28 14:06:16 UTC
No longer reproducible with gnome-shell-3.28.2-1.el7.x86_64 Closing.

Comment 13 Vitezslav Humpa 2018-06-28 14:08:08 UTC
Oh, actually still reproducible with Firefox as c#11 states. Sorry, reopening.

Comment 14 Brandon Nielsen 2019-09-18 20:27:33 UTC
This appears to be an issue with much newer versions of gnome-shell as well, reproducible with Files 100% of the time on Fedora 31, gnome-shell 3.34.0-1.
