1. Open the Library
2. Click "All Bookmarks" in the left tree.
3. Drag the "Bookmarks Menu" folder in the content tree and drop it into itself or into "Bookmarks Menu" in the left tree.

Dropping is not permitted.

Actual results:
The folder disappears from "All Bookmarks" on the left side. It's still shown on the right side, temporarily. While it's there, you can still drag it back to "All Bookmarks". Otherwise "Bookmarks Menu" also appears in the Bookmarks menu, from where you can drag it.

On top of not allowing a folder to be dropped on it self, the patch will also disable the option of dropping a folder on any of its descendants.

Each dragged node should be checked (and then you should disallow dropping if _any_ of the items cannot be dropped).

The order here is wrong, numDropItems should be used only once |session| is known to be non null.

r=mano otherwise.

I'm changing this to for(i =0 ... on checkin, |i| is declared in the first loop within this function.

Also, do the type-check first.
