Description

9 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; InfoPath.1)
Build Identifier: 3.0.3 and 3.1 beta (10/13)

Images from certain web pages, which could successfully be dragged and dropped onto a Vista Sidebar gadget using Firefox 2, no longer works with Firefox 3. Using the same drop handling mechanism, 

System.Shell.itemFromFileDrop(event.dataTransfer, 0) 

returns a NULL.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download and install the HP Photo Print gadget from Microsoft's Live Gadget Gallery of HP's site, http://www.hp.com/go/photogadget.
2. Go to www.snapfish.com and try to drag an image onto the print gadget.
3. User will be informed to copy the image first before printing. This was not required for Firefox 2. 
Actual Results:  
User will be informed to copy the image first before printing. This was not required for Firefox 2. 

Expected Results:  
The print gadget should have been able to enumerate and dropped image and print it like it did from Firefox 2.

Interestingly enough, the image from snapfish COULD be dragged onto the desktop which leads me to believe that Mozilla and Microsoft has collaborated on the definition and handling of the D&D interface. How should D&D be handled in JScript running in a sidebar gadget?
