I would like to have the behaviour that allow to move the canvas anywhere.
It is only available when i press on F, but then it makes my extra window disappear.
(By extra window, i mean that i work with a "window/arrange/new window for", which is a dezoomed version of my document.)

Go to photoshop preferences > Tools. From there, make sure overscroll is checked. this allows you to move the canvas freely regardless of what mode you are in. 
Hope that helps!
