From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20010914 BuildID: 2001092020 This is a bug that is specific to the Linux version of Mozilla. When a user drags the link (the icon beside the URL text in the URL text/drag-down box) to the Bookmarks "folder", it does not allow the user to drag the link to a specific sub-folder as it does in the Windows version. The Bookmarks folder instead stays open for a period of time and then closes after clicking something else a few times. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Point mouse pointer at icon besides URL text in browser. 2.Click and drag the icon to the bookmarks folder. 3.Move the link down the list of bookmarks. Actual Results: The bookmarks folder is opened, but it gives the same result as a user who is simply click on the folder to find a link to a site. Expected Results: The bookmark icon should be draged down, as a moving line between bookmarks, that the user may place either in the root bookmark directory, or within a sub-directory. Once the user lets go of the mouse button, the new bookmark should be placed in the desired directory. Depending on the build used, the bookmarks folder will either stay open for a long time, or close quickly. This problem is specific to the latest version, 0.9.4, because the feature had not been implemented in previous versions. This feature works perfectly in the Windows version, but not in the Linux version.
Confirming. This fails for me on RedHat 7.1, Gnome 1.4, Mozilla 2001100906. The bookmarks folder the submitter is speaking of is the toolbar bookmarks. When I tried to drag a bookmark into there, not only could I not drag it to an appropriate folder, the menu would not go away and I could click on no other window, forcing me to kill mozilla from another virtual screen.

This happened to me on win2k with 2001101117 build. When I drag a bookmark and hold it on a bookmark folder (either displayed on toolbar, or through Toolbar->Bookmarks->Personal Toolbar Folder) the sub-folders don't get displayed. Please verify. Thanx.
