Description

15 years ago
Build: 2002-08-21-05
Platform: OS X 10.2 (6C115)

Expected Results: Drag and dropping a text selection into browser should be
processed.

What I got: 

Chimera's status bar remains at "Resolving host:" and spinning color cursor
appear. App seems to go into a endless loop.


Steps to reproduce:

1) Launch Chimera
2) Launch Apple's TextEdit, Stickies, or Mail.app
3) In either of these app mentioned, type a url like www.macworld.com
4) Select this entire string. Drag selection over chimera's browser window and
mouseup.
5) Chimera doesn't process this selection correctly and spinning color cursor
will continue to animate (forever).

Using these same steps, Chimera does correctly process the text strings I drag
to it under OS X 10.1.5.

Simon,

 I can drag/drop a selection into Chimera's sidebar which creates a new
bookmark. This problem only happens when drag/drop the selection into the
browser window directly.

This is probably the BOM in the drag data, which was fixed.
