Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set up any html file. 2. Drag the file into a SeaMonkey window Actual Results: Sometimes the page becomes blank. Expected Results: The page should show of course. This failed for me just now so there must be another factor. I made a file x.html with only three lines: <html> something </html> and dragged and dropped it - but it showed. It's not clear why this bug occurs sometimes and not others.
I suspect this is not an application-specific issue, but I could be wrong - can you see if this happens in Firefox (3.5.x) as well?
(In reply to comment #1) Good question. Since SeaMonkey is my main browser and I didn't want to switch, I put my mouse on the file and right clicked and then selected Open With to chose browsers. SeaMonkey failed. Firefox 3.5.4 succeeded. Safari 4.0.4 succeded. Answer: it is application specific and even the latest version of SeaMonkey specific since previous versions did not do this.
Does it only fail with drag and drop? How about File->Open with the same file? Any relevant errors in the Error Console? Tools->Web Development->Error Console
(In reply to comment #3) > Does it only fail with drag and drop? How about File->Open with the same file? > > Any relevant errors in the Error Console? > Tools->Web Development->Error Console Thanks for raising this. I can't reproduce it anymore. It's been nearly 2 years and I don't recall the file that gave me the problem. A simple file works and a pretty complex one did too. So I am going to change the status to Resolved WORKSFORME. If it comes up again I'll make a new bug.
