Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050531 Camino/0.9+
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050531 Camino/0.9+

Currently, if I go into the Bookmark Manager and drag a bookmark from the main
area to a sub-folder, the sub-folder will always expand.  Consistent with the OS
X Finder, the sub-folder should only expand if the user hovers over it for a
moment.  This becomes a bit of a hassle when dealing with sub-folders with large
numbers of bookmarks inside.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the Bookmark Manager.
2. Create a bookmark sub-folder with about 30 items inside.
3. Create five or six items outside the sub-folder.
4. Make sure the sub-folder is collapsed.
5. Drag an item from the main area to the sub-folder.

Actual Results:  
Sub-folder expands.

Expected Results:  
Sub-folder should only expand if the user hovers over it for a moment (as with
the OS X Finder).  If the item is dragged over the folder and released
immeadiately, it should be placed into the sub-folder while the sub-folder
itself remains collapsed.
I think the root issue is ultimately the same as in bug 278827.  Safari has the
same issue (although it springs open almost instantaneously, whereas Camino
allows you to hover a little longer before springing open).

Mike, can you confirm that the behavior described in this bug is an OS/Cocoa
behavior (that we don't want to hack)?

Ah yes, I see that Safari does this as well.  I'm surprised I never noticed it
before, seems quite contrary to what one would expect.

IIRC this is the default NSOutlineView behavior for autoexpanding (i.e., it's
not something custom).

Finder is not cocoa. We use the standard OS cocoa control, so we can't really do
much about this.
