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
