When I drag a URL to the bookmarks bar to add it as a bookmark, it works except
that it does not fill i nthe name, and so the name is blank, which, in effect,
only leaves a blank space where the bookmark name should go.  So, the link
works, but without a name, it's hard to figure out where to click.  In the last
version, the default Bookmark Name was the URL.  It would be nice to have a
default name as the characters within www....com.  Also, as I'm typing this, the
text is not rendering correctly.   



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to a website
2.Select URL and drag to bookmarks bar
3.Wonder why there is no default bookmark name

Actual Results:  
Clicked where the default name should pop up, and the link worked.  Checked the
bookmarks manager and found the link, but with no name.

Expected Results:  
Added the bookmark with a name.
I'm confirming. I can see this by dragging the URL of this bug to the bookmark bar.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
This worked in 0.8.4; dragging a raw http://foo.bar url to the bookmarks bar
added a bookmark with title "http://foo.bar"

I think that Bruce was working on a patch for this issue. I once tested a build
of his that had a fix for this. CCing bruce

When I drag a URL that has an icon to the left of it, (one of those little URL
icons) the icon shows up in the Bookmarks Bar, which is nice., but no name.

I'm confused. In 2005061708, I don't see this at all. Dragging URLs from the
content uses the linked text for the bookmark title.

Where are you folks dragging *from* to see this?
Simon, I'm using the same build you are and see it. I've updated the summary to
reflect more of what actually happens.

You have to drag the URL from the location bar onto the bookmark bar and when
you do so, you see the favicon (if there is one) or, presumably (as I haven't
tried), a blank spot where the favicon would be that is clickable to load the
bookmarked URL.

So, to clarify, this is from the location bar only.

The only time I see this is if the page has no <title> (like a .txt file).

I see this on bugzilla URLs dragging the actual URL and not the icon. If you
drag the icon, the title appears.

What do you mean by "dragging the actual URL"? You can't drag the selected text
in the url bar....
