Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050901
Firefox/1.6a1

Open Manage Bookmarks window from Firefox.  click one of the items within it and
try to Drag and drop it into some of the Live Bookmarks Folder in the left pane.
 Firefox doesn't alert the user that it could not be dropped there.  Actually
the link is not dropped there.  If the action is done in the right pane, and if
the user hovers around for a bit, the folder opens up to show the items inside
it.  Here the mouse pointer does change style if he hovers over any of the items. 

Desirable:

The mouse pointer should change into the not allowed style.

Hari, I'm not sure what you mean by this. Dragging a bookmark and dropping it
into that folder does move the bookmark into the folder. The tree view on the
right is supposed to let you see how your bookmarks will be layed out in the
toolbar (sort of). So what is the problem here? We are moving the bookmark to
that folder, so should't we give visual feedback that this is happening?

It is about the live bookmarks.  As such live bookmarks show up as folders whose 
contents (items) are updated depending on the feed.  Therefore, the user cannot 
alter these, as such.  What I mean is, when the bookmark item from one folder is 
dragged into a live bookmark folder the mouse pointer should change to 'Action 
not allowed' style (a circle with a slash over it).  

Moreover, the live bookmarks folders themselves should have a different look to 
avoid confusion.
i'm pretty sure this works as expected in 3.1
