This is a feature request present in another browser, that I'd like to have in Firefox.

The drag & drop of a link for only a few pixels should have the same effect as "Open link in new Tab"
When selecting text (that may be a web address), the text should be parsed on a new tab in the address bar upon dragging for a few pixels (i.e. not to a drop destination)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
