Something which lacks from both Firefox and IE on Windows is the ability to drag
a file onto the text-input area, when faced with an "Attach a File" type form.

In all occasions you are forced to hit "Browse" or manually type the full path
to the file.

It would be an excellent enhancement to allow a file to be dragged from an open
folder or the desktop, onto a File input form control and for Firefox to get the
path to that file and insert it into the form.

Currently an 'unavailable' cursor appears when files are dragged over these
controls.
