User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20060926 Camino/1.0+
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird version 3 alpha 1 (20061003)

Moving of messages by dragging the header line from the message "catalog" pane onto a folder icon in the mailbox listing has broken between the Sep 26 nightly and the Oct 01 nightly.  The drag appears to start normally (message header line higlights, and outline deags) but the folders do not act as targets (i.e. do not highlight when dragged over).  Moving messages via main or context menu commands works fine.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open mailbox
2. Select message from listing of mailbox contents
3. Attempt to drag onto another folder

Actual Results:  
As above

Expected Results:  
Target folder highlights, and releasing mouse while hovering over target folder causes message to be moved.
It might be an influence of bug326469.
The problem occurs similarly in Firefox by D&D.(bug354958)
It is likely to improve it with FIXED of bug332913. 
Depends on: 332913
any chance it is affected by an attempt to fix https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=329086
Next week we see the 2 months anniversary for this bug (Built from Sept. 27th is the last where drag&drop works).

Any news here or in any other of the 20 associated/dependant bugs?

A very arrogant message by Wayne Woods ([url=https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=332913#c42]Comment #42 From Wayne Woods[/url]) states that the basic bug 332913 was solved 3 weeks ago. Anybody working on this one now?

This problem has still reproduced. 
The following environment also exhibits the behavior noted by Charles Bailey:

  Thunderbird 1.5.0.9
  FreeBSD 6.1
  i386

Any suggestions on how I might help to fix this?
It also happens in Seamonkey, so please change the "product" designator.
Behavior disappears when gtk+ is reverted from 2.10.7 to 2.8.20

Based on when the behavior first appears in Thunderbird (per Charles Bailey, this was between September 26 and October 01) and on the release schedule for gtk+ (as inferred from file dates on ftp.gtk.org), the behavior was probably introduced with gtk 2.10.3 (released around September 05), 2.10.4 (released around September 23), or 2.10.6 (released around October 04), however, I have not tested this.

One *possible* cause (out of many) for this behavior would be an API change in gtk+ such as a change in the default value for a flag on the widget used for displaying the folder tree.

Is there somebody familiar with Thunderbird and gtk+ who would like to tackle this? Scott MacGregor, perhaps? Or is there somebody who could point me to the right files?
Please, read these two post in the freebsd-gnome mailing list:
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-gnome/2007-January/016547.html
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-gnome/2007-January/016537.html

They are both reporting similar problem after the upgrade from gtk-2.10.6 to gtk-2.10.7.

The first is related to thunderbird, the second to the bookmarks manager using firefox, seamonkey and mozilla.
this also happens in ubuntu (feisty) starting with the update to gtk-2.10.7
Any news about a fix - 4 months after the first appearance?

This parcicular case is reported here as bug 367203 with a working patch.
There is also http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=394525 for gtk+ upstream report
This is also occurring in Fedora Core 6 with gtk2-2.10.8-1.fc6 .

Ran thunderbird from a terminal and the following error is printed several times.

(Gecko:7527): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_drag_get_data: assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed

As others have requested, please change the hardware and OS.
As far i can see, i lost the whole d&d functionality in mozilla products: 
This affects mozilla, seamonkey, thunderbird and firefox. 
This affects moving mail messages, bookmarks and also address-cards. 

The root of all evil ;-) seems to be some gtk-lib.

Hm, i use gtk2-2.8.3-4
(at least that is what rpm -q gtk2 says) 
and have the same problem. 

So, i'm not sure whether to upgrade or to downgrade... 

who can help??????????
Marking as dupe. Do try a recent nightly that would have the fix.

still having this bug in most recent thunderbird, thunderbird 2, and thunderbird 3. and firefox.

gtk 2.10.9, i686, official mozilla releases.
Bob, you are not alone ;-) 
i also tried thunderbird, thunderbird 2, and thunderbird 3. and firefox. 
but in contrast to you with gtk2 2.8.3: 
same problem. 

Is this the same bug or another one? 

Today i try an update suse 10.0 --> 10.2  without hope that this helps. 

May also be bug 370295.
