Bug Description

To reproduce:

Open two Chrome windows and two Firefox windows. Drag a .html file over the Chrome icon in the Launcher. A spread of the two Chrome windows should appear. Then continue the same drag, and drag the file over the Firefox icon in the Launcher. Nothing happens, the Chrome spread is still displayed.

Desired behaviour;

After a spread appears as a result of the user dragging a file over a application icon in the Launcher, if the user then drags the file over a different application icon (where the application is also a valid drop receptacle for the file type) the spread should switch to the newly selected application.

Is this bug about switching between spreads on dnd to launcher or actually getting a spread on dnd?
(don't get a spread here, dnd'ed file just opens in new tab
Plus there is no dnd on .html (text/html) with firefox or chrome icons though there is with .xml (application/xml
