Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; cs-CZ; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; cs-CZ; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050414 Firefox/1.0.3

When I drag and drop a link from other application to browser window, it will be
opened, though it is refering to privileged file.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create link to privileged file in other application. 
for example: <a href="chrome://browser/content/browser.xul">gogo</a>
Make an e-mail in Thunderbird with this link and use "send later" (in HTML).
Read this mail in folder "unsent messages".

2.Drag and drop the link to Firefox window.
Actual Results:  
Privileged file was opened.
60 days inactive: INVALID in 72 hours, otherwise reassigning to owner.

Is this reproducable with a nightly build (http://www.mozilla.org/developer)?

What is the expected result? If you originally had priviledges to the file, why
would the transfer remove those priviledges from you?

I supposed this problem. However, you probably want know, what Firefox should do by my opinion. Firefox should do the same, which do, when you drag&drop link from Firefox, I think. (ignore drag&drop)

I don't understand this question.
If you're dragging the link from Firefox, what are you dragging it to?
