Solaris 12, Thunderbird 17.

Drag and drop rss link from FF to folderpane simply never works

Step:
-have TB with a blog and feeds account
-have a page with rss link, like www.nytimes.com/services/xml/rss/index.html
-drag from browser to account or folder under Blogs

Expected: 
new feed added and refreshed.

Actual: 
Nothing happened. Error message found in Error console:
    TypeError: dt.mozGetDataAt(...) is null
    chrome://messenger/content/folderPane.js
Also happens in Thunderbird 17.3 / Linux
OS: OpenSolaris → Linux
this works in winxp/win7, but on linux the data xfer filetype for a url is "application/x-moz-file", which then fails, and the feed subscribe part is not invoked.

this is likely a core dnd issue.

Attached patch patchSplinter Review
but regardless of the filetype, it's simple to change the dnd processing order and try if the folder is rss.
