User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b3) Gecko/20050712 Firefox/1.0+ Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b3) Gecko/20050712 Firefox/1.0+ The bookmark toolbar folder menus don't open for dragged links on Mac OS X. I.e. one can drop a link (from the location bar, web page, etc.) onto the closed folder and have it appear at the bottom of the menu. However, the folder menu won't open to allow filing the link in a particular order, in a submenu, etc. For comparison, drag-to-organize works fine on the Windows XP bookmark toolbar. This is further aggravated as the bookmark toolbar menu doesn't even give highlight feeback to show where a dragged link will be deposited (in a folder, on the toolbar itself, etc.) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Drag a link from the location bar or web page to a bookmark toolbar folder. 2. Hold the link over the toolbar folder name. Actual Results: Nothing. The menu doesn't pop open to allow placement, nor is any feedback provided to let the user know where the dragged item will be placed. Expected Results: Menus and submenus on the bookmark toolbar should open to allow the user to place dragged links in the desired position. The toolbar itself and all menus/submenus should provide clear feedback via highlighting or a vertical/horiziontal cursor to indicate precisely where on the toolbar or menu the link will appear when the mouse button is released.

(In reply to comment #1) > > Related to bug 235243? It does appear to be related, although that bug changed direction -- it appears that a problem was identified (and fixed?) for Windows, but never addressed for Mac OS X. I'll note that this report highlights usability problems over and above the simple lack of bookmark toolbar folders popping open. These problems are not addressed in bug 235243.
bug 299185 reads similar and perhaps this is a dup of 299185, unless it's misplaced in product=core.
(In reply to comment #3) > bug 299185 reads similar and perhaps this is a dup of 299185 There is certainly overlap; I'd be willing to mark it as a dupe, except that bug 299185 doesn't address the related problem of a lack of visual feedback -- no highlighting of the folder or toolbar location (w/ a vertical line) occurs in FF.
Jesse is this confirmable, or is this a dup?
(In reply to comment #5) > Jesse is this confirmable, or is this a dup? I'd propose that we mark this as a dupe of bug #299185, but also file a new one because there is no visible feedback from bookmark folders on the bookmark toolbar when hovering over them in drag&drop mode (since this issue is listed in this bug as well).
Created bug #311329 to deal with the visual feedback aspects of this report. We are now free to mark this report as a dupe of bug #299185 which deals with the folder expansion problem solely.
