Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox-3.5

After a while drag & drop stops working. Among other things, this prevents reordering of tabs.

This in .xsession-errors could be relevant.

Just happened to me on the same version of Firefox (3.5.9+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.9.10.1), Ubuntu karmic, x86_64. Anything that can normally be dragged (bookmarks, tabs, etc.) can't be dragged anymore. After restarting Firefox, drag and drop works again.
