Yes, bug 1330797 was a regression in which no files or folders could be dragged to

This issue is not a regression and it only affects the files within folders, which are not uploaded.

Is this something to do with webkitdirectory?

baku looked and thinks this may be DnD-related. Michael, can you take a look?

I've looked into this more, and I have found a difference between our and chrome's implementation which may be breaking onedrive due to string comparisons. states that the relative path of a file should not start with a `/` character. This matches chrome's behavior, however our implementation includes that leading slash. I believe that onedrive uses a string comparison with the low part of the path to determine which directory to upload a file into (or something along those lines - following minified code in a debugger is tricksy). 

Baku, how hard would it be to write a patch which doesn't include that leading slash, so we can check if it fixes the problem? (Even if it doesn't fix the problem, we probably want that patch for spec compliance).
