text/x-moz-url data (URL\nTitle) dropped into the single line input box used to just lose the title, which was okay. The drop handler (bug 307774) handles both lines as-is, which is annoying.

It should either discard the title, or arrange the URL and title on one line to avoid opening the multiline box.
Attached patch Hacky patchSplinter Review
I don't like this patch very much. I don't think we can do anything better, because the transferrable is sucky that way and will not tell us it also supports x-moz-url. That is, if you ask it to enumerate all the flavours, it magically forgot about x-moz-url, at least in my testing. In other words, we're kind of screwed, hence the hack. Fortunately this also seems to work just fine :-)

Waaa, that's horrible. What happens if you do data.getTransferData on the URL type? Does that give you anything?

Please add a giant XXX comment here about the transferable not having the special URL type and that this is a hack.

r=silver with that added.

    // XXX part of what follows is a very ugly hack to make links (with a title)
    // not open the multiline box. We 'should' be able to ask the transferable
    // what flavours it supports, but testing showed that by the time we can ask
    // for that info, it's forgotten about everything apart from text/unicode.
