The document tab controls (home, MySQL Model, open diagrams) do not block mouse movements on button down like all the other buttons and tab controls. This results in unwanted moving of the document window on switching tabs.

How to repeat:
Click on a document tab an keep the mouse button pressed. Moving the mouse moves the window. Try switching tabs fast without moving the window.

Suggested fix:
The active area for moving the document window (i.e. title bar) should exclude controls.

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 6.2.2 release, and here's the changelog entry:

The document tab controls now block mouse movements when the button is
down, as to prevent accidental window dragging.

Thank you for the bug report.
