User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9.1.1) Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:1.9.1.1) Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1

I can no longer drag and drop links between firefox windows. I used to be able to left-click on a link, not release the button, drag the mouse to another firefox window, and release the button so as to load the URL in the other window. Now after the click as soon as I start dragging the mouse cursor changes from the hand to the regular cursor and I can't drag. Releasing on the other window does not load the URL.

No problem on Windows Vista. 
Have you also tested this in safe-mode or with a new profile?
