Bug Description

The Launcher should auto-reveal only if files are dragged, generally from places like Nautilus or the Dash.

When something other than a file is dragged from inside any other application (e.g. text selected in a GEdit or a Browser), the hidden Launcher should reveal itself only if the user performs the standard gesture while dragging (currently, pushing the cursor over the left edge).

When will the fix be released, as the launcher still apears when I drag bookmarks in Firefox which is annoying?

Still no fix in Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr) for dragging favicons from the firefox address bar to the bookmark bar.
