User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.7) Gecko/2009021910 Firefox/3.0.7 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.7) Gecko/2009021910 Firefox/3.0.7 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

Firefox 3 does not accept drag and drop URL's from Netscape 7.2.  If u drag a URL from the location or a link in Netscape 7.2 onto Firefox's window, nothing happens.  This does work from Netscape 4.79 and Internet Explorer and Firefox itself.  This functionality was present in Firefox 2 and worked with no issues.

The URL can be dropped onto Firefox's location bar however.  This functions according to the highlight-copy-drag-paste text idiom.  


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Drag any URL onto Firefox's window from Netscape 7.2.

Actual Results:  
Nothing

Expected Results:  
Firefox should go to the dropped URL.

Anybody ever look into this?  It's got to be something stupid like FF not liking the OLE type of the drag data..
