From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020401 BuildID: 2002040103 When I maximize the Mozilla browser, I can't drag the bookmark icon from the URL bar to an Explorer folder window to create a .url file. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Maximize Mozilla Navigator. 2. Bring an Explorer folder window to the front. 3. Try to drag the bookmark from the URL bar to the folder window. Actual Results: Mozilla raises itself on mouse-down, obscuring the folder window. Expected Results: Mozilla is not raised until mouse-up, allowing me to move the mouse pointer on top of the folder window and release the mouse button to drop the bookmark. Workaround: Restore (un-maximize) the browser window. This may be one symptom of a more general problem with Mozilla's drag and drop support. Not only is it annoying for users who habitually browse maximized, but it's also inconsistent with the rest of Windows. For instance, Windows Explorer on Windows ME doesn't raise until mouse-up.
Sorry but this is the correct and usual behaviour for a maximized window, try with IE and you'll have the same result both in Win98 and WinXP. Bug should be marked as INVALID
That's funny: The behavior of Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer differ under Windows 2000. Explorer raises on mouse-up when dragging files but on mouse-down when dragging HTML links. Which behavior is more useful?
Easy workaround: Drag the bookmark to the button for the folder on the taskbar. Windows will then maximise that folder. You can then drop it onto the window.
