Comment 132 for bug 381017

If I can chime in with a comment to the developers (if anyone is listening here): I am used to never use drag and drop of attachment on TB now, given the really broken behavior.

Suggestion: ditch the thing completely. Remove drag and drop. For good.

It's so broken it is more a danger(1) than any other thing, and it is not so necessary in the end, you can live with "save as..." and company. I suppose that a bug like that not fixed in 7 years means it's too complex to fix; let's accept it and move on. Leaving an half-baked functionality is much worse than not having it.

(1) because sometime it *seems* to work; it creates an icon from which the content is not accesible at all, and can lead to data loss for unsuspecting users.
