STR#1 (tabs on top): 1. Mousedown on a tab. 2. Move mouse cursor on Firefox button. Actual Result: The firefox button shows hover effect. STR#2 (not tabs on top and shows bookmark toolbar): 1. Mousedown on a tab 2. Move mouse cursor on a folder in bookmark toolbar. Actual Result: The folder shows hover effect, but the tab cannot be dropped in the folder. I don't think the STR#1 case makes users confuse. However, STR#2 isn't so. It looks like the tab can be treated as a bookmark item, but actually not so. And I see the hover effect on other buttons too. E.g., the other kink of tabs (e.g., when you drag a normal tab, app tabs) show hover effect. The add tab button, some added buttons by customizing in bookmark toolbar are too.
We already mitigated this problem by not having the bookmarks folder open on dragover (see https://bug455694.bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=528816) and clearly showing that the tab is directly manipulated rather than creating a copy of it that can be dropped into folders. I don't think it's worth the effort to fix this minor issue.

Frank, don't you misunderstand my report? I think that we should prevent the hover effect, I don't think that the tab should act as a bookmark item.
Yeah, this bug isn't really about bookmark folders. (And comment 0 doesn't make much sense in this regard either when it talks about bookmark items.) Bug 674925 should fix this. Real drag and drop prevents hover effects while dragging.
