Description

9 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-GB; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Thunderbird/3.0.4 & Firefox 3.6.3

The drag handler in Thunderbird is somewhat broken as apps with components that interface with IShellFolder work fine with Outlook, Live Mail, etc. but don't work with Thunderbird when using Windows Vista.  The failure is when there is a drop and IShellFolder.Drop is called when dropping a Thunderbird email or attachment on it.  Any attachment file or email dropped using Vistafails, but using XP or Windows 7, it all works fine.

As an example download the examples at http://www.jam-software.com/shellbrowser_delphi/Samples.zip and run the JamExplorer.exe, it works fine for dragging Thunderbird emails and attachments using XP & Windows 7 but will not work for Vista (it interfaces with IShellFolder).


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the JamExplorer.exe app or any other app that accepts drag & drop using the IShellFolder
2. Drag and drop an email or an attachment onto it (using Windows Vista only) and nothing happens.  The action fails on the IShellFolder.Drop
3.
Actual Results:  
Nothing happens

Expected Results:  
Email or attachment should appear in the folder as it does when using XP or Win 7.

Only occurs using Vista.  Just did a test using Firefox and the same bug is there, you can drop onto Windows Explorer but not onto another software company's shell view.

Use this app running on Windows Vista and try to drag and drop an email or email attachment from Thunderbird onto it.  Also try to drag and drop an image from Firefox as well.  Run the same app again in Windows XP or Windows 7, do the same and this time it will work.  Only happens with Firefox and Thunderbird.

Not sure if this is the correct bug since this is a sporadic issue. When dragging and dropping to desktop or folder on windows vista, sometimes the attachment is 0kb. But only sometimes. Below are the details from the source of one of the emails. I'm including it b/c of the multiple duplicate boundry openings that myfax has in there, it looks like it could be a potential source of the problem. B/c it's client info i've scrubbed the majority of the content of the emails.

It is not sporadic as the failure dropping to an IShellFolder interfaced object using Windows Vista happens 100% of the time.  I have not encountered the 0 byte size yet, but this could be due to a large email and tempramental Vista as Thunderbird leaves the file existant for only 500ms which sometimes might not be enough time for Vista to prepare itself and do a Move (you see that annoying dialog saying calculating time to move when moving files in Vista).
