From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020311 BuildID: 2002031104 Dragging a file from Internet Explorer to the file explorer downloads the file and places the actual file in the directory dragged to. From Mozilla, only a web-link is placed in the directory dragged to. This behaviour in Internet Explorer is very useful, and is currently one of the last reasons I have not switched over from IE entierly. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Connect to an ftp-site 2. Drag a file from an ftp-dir to a directory in the File explorer Actual Results: A web link is created in the directory dragged to. Expected Results: Download the file, and place it in the directory. Not sure if this only works in IE due to the integration between the apps, but if it is possible to mimic the same behaviour from Mozilla it would be very useful.

I've figured out a temporary workaround as follows: Step 1) Turn off Moz's handling of FTP (Prefs->Advanced->System) Step 2) Edit the registry entry for HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT such that a) shell:open:command => explorer.exe "%1" b) delete (or rename) the shell:open:ddeexec key. This way, the ftp sites I use frequently are handled by explorer (I have these as explorer 'favourites') and the rest by moz.
