Windows 7: Problems dragging full screen browser windows

Problems dragging full screen browser windows

For a couple of weeks now, iv had this problem where ill have a firefox browser open full screen, and ill want to move it to my second monitor(i have two monitors). So ill move the mouse to the top, left click and hold then try and drag the window. Sometimes it moves fine, but often it fights against me going back to it's original full screen state(as soon as i pull it away from being full screen, it goes back to full screen again).

As you can imagine, this is quite irritating but not super important(I can just double click it to shrink the window and then move it that way). Just wondered if anyone had experienced this, or knows how to cure it?

I did have this but very few times, i'm not sure if it is related to watching recently movies in Full Screen, but as you said, i usually do the same thing when i notice the bug, i Hold on the LMB to pull the window to a smaller size and then drag it to the other monitor.
