User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.8.0.4) Gecko/20060608 Ubuntu/dapper-security Firefox/1.5.0.4

Rather than using the Browse dialog for file upload, it would be nice to drag and drop a file from the OS file manager into the form field, which is populated with the correct path.

This way one can use special features of the OS file manager to search for files that is not necessarily available from within Firefox.

Or if one already has that directory open in a file manager, why not make use of that rather than having to search through a (deep) directory tree.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a page with file upload form
2. Open to an arbitrary directory in OS file manager
3. Try to drag file into file upload form box

Actual Results:  
Path to file is not filled in.

Expected Results:  
Path to file is filled in.
