given the webpage, scroll down to the table portion, double click on the last word of any cell there and attempt to drag it outside the cell but within the document view, will cause the change of current URL. This only works only if the highlighted text is the last word of a table cell. Dragging other words or dragging within the cell will take no effect as the expected behavior when dragging plain text.
I see this too. Win98, 082308.

I do not see this on 082408 mozilla win32 build on NT.
OK, I can see this if you drag the selected text outside of mozilla (to the windows taskbar for example) and then drag it back into mozilla and drop it. this looks like it might be related to bug 40911. adding brade and pinkerton and sending to XPApps.

nav triage team: The bug described in the description no longer exists in NS6, marking W4M. As Asa notes, if you drag any word out of the window and back, it's exactly as if you typed that word into URL. Don't know if that's the correct behavior or not, but someone log a new bug if it isn't.
