When I create a new document or when I open an existing document Illustrator always opens a new window which is not attached to the program. I have to drag it first to the tabs so that it is inside of the program. I can't find the setting that changes this behavior.

Do you have "Open Documents As Tab" selected in the User Interface section of your Illustrator preferences? Check this and then quit the program and it should become the default. You may have to do it with no document open for it to become the default.
