Created attachment 565722 [details] html document with script of drag-out I think it would be good to support file drag-out feature. At the moment it is supported only by Google Chrome, however it is really easy and enjoyable to save your files with the help of this feature and I guess it will become more popular in recent time. Attached html document should allow a user to save any of two presented files in any directory on user's computer by simple drag-and-drop operation. If you try to do it with Firefox 7, you will get a shortcut of this file saved. Moreover not always you will be able to open it successfully. Drag-out feature will allow user to save the files by dropping it into directory on user’s computer.

Works for me, Firefox 7 on Ubuntu 11.04 (using KDE window manager). Does it work if you press the Control key while you drop?
I am working on Windows 7. Pressing and holding control key while droping doesn't make any difference. Only shortcut is created. I change Platform in Description from All to Windows 7.
OS: All → Windows 7
