Not set

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:26.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/26.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130818030219

Steps to reproduce:

Using Windows 7:
1) Create a shared folder.
2) Open Computer folder, right click background, choose "Add a network location", and add the shared folder.
3) Drag the URL Bar icon into this network location folder.

Actual results:

Windows Explorer crashes.

Expected results:

A shortcut should be created in the shared folder.
Helpful hint to fixing the problem: Network Locations are stored in "C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Network Shortcuts\" as links to the entered location. My guess would be that Firefox is attempting to write the shortcut file into the link, rather than the path the link points to.

This is WFM using

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:25.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/25.0 ID:20131025151332 CSet: d86ad7db1de3

I checked using both a local and a remote Share as a drive.

"C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Network Shortcuts\" is empty though.
