Would prefer if drag'n'drop in OS X dropped the image; now drops image URI

Summary: Would prefer if drag'n'drop in OS X dropped the image; now drops image URI

Comments: 
(Mac OS X only)

The summary says most of it. When dragging and dropping an image from,
for example, Safari to an RTF document in TextEdit, the dragged image is
dropped into the document. When doing the same with Firefox, the image
URL is dropped instead.

I read somewhere that this behavior would be changed in Firefox 1.5 - I
just tried it out with Firefox 1.5 RC3, and it hadn't changed.

I'm not sure how people generally want this to behave - I can imagine
the reasoning behind this is that an image can be dropped onto an
e-mail, which sould insert the URL in the message body rather than
insert the actual image.

I would like it if drag'n'drop of an image did drop the image instead -
I could drag images from web pages into word processing documents etc.

This would also be more consistent with the behaviour of other Mac OS X
apps.

Image drag 'n drop
Name: Ubik P. Email: joe_chipatperkypat-layoutsdotcom Product: Minefield Summary: Image drag 'n drop Comments: Dear sirs, I'm just another Firefox junkie since the dawn of time, waiting to make the final transition to the new version, holding back still because of some extensions but also because of a few annoyances that hopefully will be fixed (?) Perhaps it's only one, namely dragging images, that doesn't seem to always work. More specifically, dragging images into ACDSee, a program I depend on.

drag'n'drop feedback for trees
Hello everyone, I am trying to find out how to use CSS for highlighting rows in a tree where the mouse cursor is currently on during a drag operation. My tree allows the user to drag'n'drop elements inside the tree to rearrange the rows. I want to highlight the insertion point similar to the folder tree on the left side in Mozilla Thunderbird. The Mozilla documentation [1] mentions the 'dropOn' CSS property, but I am not sure how to use it correctly, the following line doesn't seem to work as expected: #mytree treechildren::-moz-tree-row(dropOn) { ba...

Drag and drop images where -we- want them, not where the 'next available spot' is.
Name: Catheryne Email: kate_lavertueatyahoodotca Product: Firefox Release Candidate Summary: Drag and drop images where -we- want them, not where the 'next available spot' is. Comments: I always save images by dragging them off of the browser to the desktop. A lot of times, I'll have images that go with each other; with Safari, I'd drag them in the right spot, and that would be that. But with Firefox, when I drag them to the desktop, they always go where they want to go, not where I put them. I then have to sort them out. When you do that for a lot of i...

The new look took some getting used to, but it grew on me. I don't like that the address bar history has big fat descriptions instead of URLs when I start typing, but I was going to let that slide. Now I find out that I can't drag and drop images into other programs (like Photoshop). I don't know what the improvement to drag and drop is supposed to be, but there wasn't ...

Drag 'n' Drop Project
Here is a small test for all those hardcore JavaScript programmers. Is it possible to drag'n'drop a text/image element (eg. A or IMG tag) from one (I)FRAME to another (I)FRAME. This is easy & possible with IE's proprietary ondrag events. However the question is, is there a work-around using standard W3C/Firefox onmousedown, onmouseup, etc. events only? For an example of drag'n'dropping from one FRAME to another (using IE's events) see: http://www.tardis.ed.ac.uk/~afsweb/dndp/default2.html You can download all the files at: http://www.tardis.ed.ac.u...

Drag'N'Drop bookmarks--?
Name: Kevin Phillips Email: kevphilatsbcglobaldotnet Product: Firefox Release Candidate Summary: Drag'N'Drop bookmarks--?
