form-input-type=file should accept "drag and drop"
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; de; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20100106 Ubuntu/9.10 (karmic) Firefox/3.5.7 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; de; rv:18.104.22.168) Gecko/20100106 Ubuntu/9.10 (karmic) Firefox/3.5.7 Very often you have the file you want to upload somewhere visible in your OS' file browser or even on the desktop. It would improve the "look and feel" a lot if drag and drop would be possible. It is possible with normal clipboard text to type=text, so it shouldnt be a big problem on the UI side. I guess the main issue is the error handling when the dropped information is not a valid filename. I'd say this could be handled with a popup similar to the other warnings when sending form-data. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. have a html-form with type=file 2. drag'n'drop a file from desktop or OS-specific file browser to the file-input field Actual Results: a new tab opens showing the file, like it would have been dropped without hitting the form-input Expected Results: entering the filename to the input field as upload file workaround: open the file-dialog first and drop there (very cumbersome, but shows up that it can not be a big problem basically)
