I always have multiple browser windows open, each with multiple tabs. I keep my windows in a logical order, for example my first window is my main work window with all web pages I need to work.

However, after a few weeks of using Chrome my windows changed order and now I have to waste time constantly finding what is where.

Is there a way to either:
1. Stop the windows getting mixed up (Firefox has the same bug but it's far more frequent in FireFox)
2. A way to easily and manually put the windows back in the order I want them in

So far my only solution is to manually copy and paste each tab url from the first window to a new one and then rebuild my original tab list in the first window which of course is lot of work and wasted time (but less than spending 20 seconds finding each window all the time).

Thank you

I always have many Chrome windows open and it keeps recycling windows so new pages can open in a window in the middle of my screen, it's then impossible to find in which window it opened forcing me to open it again in another window.

I'm really sick of all these browsers having one problem or another, why is it so hard to make a user friendly browser?

Right click a link with option to open in new tab or new window.
