Window Tab Groups (Brush Settings, Navigator, Actions etc.) are locked into one tab panel! When I want to display a new tab from "Window", for example "Navigator", it automatically pops up on the vertical right side panel, as always, but now it won't allow me to drag/move it away from the panel!
We used to be able to minimize, maximize, drag and snap tabs into panels or just hover it in a preferred place. Since update 20.0.0 the drag/drop/snap feature has been faulty. I have one panel that has been hovering for months in the same place, which I can move fine, but any new windows I open up, it stays locked in that side panel. I can't drag it out. Please help!

Sounds like you somehow turned on "Lock Workspace"

Go to Window > Workspace > Lock Workspace to uncheck it.
