User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; fr; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 Firefox/0.7
Build Identifier: all

Drag-n-dropping a URL (shortcut) to the TITLE BAR of a browser window has no action currently :(  - It *should* be defined to open said URL, either as a new tab or in the currently active tab (which choice might be a settable preference, or decided by the developpers)

This - opening a document by dropping to the tilte bar of an application window - is not a gadget, it IS *the standard* at least in Windows, whereas drag'n'drop to the interior of the window may have other uses (CF. O.L.E.)  

Most importantly, it IS a precious usability enhancement (cases where only the title bar of the target window is apparent on desktop. This may even be the general case with some Windows enhancement accessories)


Reproducible: Always
