Description

Steps how to reproduce with Server-Installation of  unofficial (by FRG) en-US SeaMonkey 2.50a1 (NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:53.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/53.0 Build 20161219235428  (Default Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit:

Click favicon left from URL in Location bar, drag and drop favicon to arbitrary folder in Sidebar-Bookmarks-Panel.
Expected: correct bookmark
Actual: "About" or "about:blank" bookmark will be created.

I see this several times a day, but until now I do not know how to make this problem reproducible reliably.

a) nothing interesting in Error Console
b) Creating bookmark from 'Menu → Bookmarks' works fine

0. Close all Browser TABS → Quit SeaMonkey 
1. Launch Browser
   » for unknown reason reasons it will not show default page
2. Click 'Home' in Bookmarks Toolbar
   » default web page appears
3. With 'Rightlick → open in new TAB' open 3 Bookmarks from Bookmarks toolbar
4. Because of preference “Do not change to new TAB”: click most right
   TAB header
   » View changes to contents of most right TAB
5. Click on most left TAB header
  » View changes to contents of most left TAB (default page)
6. Drag and drop favicon in Location bar to arbitrary folder to
   arbitrary folder in Sidebar-Bookmarks-Panel.
   Expected: Bookmark of default home page created
   Actual: bookmark of page in most right TAB's web page created.
