The readonly location bar isn't meant to prevent users from navigating away, it's just meant to be less intrusive than the full location bar. I suppose it doesn't really need to be readonly, though.
I think it's good to keep the readonly-ness as we don't want to encourage users to navigate in popups. At the same time, fixing this bug doesn't seem worthwhile... you could still drag links to the content area.
Agreed. INVALID because the original premise was flawed. Feel free to file a bug about making the location bar not readonly for popups if you want.
