Drag&drop to FF returns "Firefox can't find the server at <weird/unknown URL>"
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:41.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0 Build ID: 20150914185908 Steps to reproduce: I run FF/linux64 Name: Firefox Version: 41.0b9 (not really, IIUC ... ) Build ID: 20150914185908 Update Channel: release User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:41.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0 Multiprocess Windows: 0/1 (default: false) When I drag-n-drop should-be-browser-openable files (media, html, etc) from Desktop into open FF window, instead of displaying the content of the file, I get "Firefox can't find the server at <weird/unknown URL>" Opening the same files via the File-> menu, there's no problem viewing them. For example, DL http://www.w3schools.com/html/mov_bbb.mp4 to Desktop, (1) Open Firefox (2) *DRAG* Video file (file:///home/pj/Desktop/mov_bbb.mp4) into open FF's main window ==> "Firefox can't find the server at www.楦敬⼺⼯潨敭戯慬敫獲䐯獥瑫灯洯癯扟扢洮㑰.com." (3) create "Hello World" file:///home/pj/Desktop/test.html (4) open file (file:///home/pj/Desktop/test.html) in FF ==> "Hello World" (5) close tab (6) open new tab (2) *DRAG* test file (file:///home/pj/Desktop/test.html) into open FF's main window ==> "Firefox can't find the server at www.xn--48b157p22ohqxjtbyze8sbk7meam792i87ih5jmvd34oba1t49j94aub.com"
Works fine for me on Linux.
