FYI. I am using Ubuntu 7.10 with the AWN dock (in place of the window list panel).

I cannot drag a favicon (URL) from the location bar to the Bookmarks>Show All (library) dialog if that dialog is minimized.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Navigate to a URL ( for example)
2. Click on Bookmarks>Show all Bookmarks
3. Minimize the Library window
4. Drag the favicon in the URL bar to the minimized Library window

Actual results:
Library window does not pop up

Expected results:
Library window should pop up

I have tested this with the default panel and it works as expected.  This issue only appears when using a dock.
Doesn't work in Firefox 2 (WinXP) either. Works normally with an unfocused (but not minimised) Library window.
Fx3rc1, 10.4.11, litmus test case 4590. When you try to drag a favicon to a minimized library, the library will not pop up to its normal size so that you can save the bookmark.

certainly not critical. Both Opera and IE correctly open when a drag is hovered over a minimized window in the task bar.

This is not a critical blocker of functionality, many workarounds exist, so not blocking the 3.1 release.
