Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2014-07-21 04:54:42 UTC
Mozilla developers David Chan and Gijs Kruitbosch reported that it is possible to create a drag and drop event in web content which mimics the behavior of a chrome customization event. This can occur when a user is customizing a page or panel. This results in a limited ability to move UI icons within the visible window but does not otherwise affect customization or window content.
