Description of problem:
If one drags a jpeg from the mozilla main window and drops it on the
desktop, a non working url shortcut is created.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start mozilla and go to
2. Drag the image from with the skulls from the browser to your
desktop (i.e. follow the Mac instructions)
An incorrectly named url shortcut called desktop_1_sm.jpg is created.
This shortcut does not work because it has the wrong extension.
o For a correctly named shortcut to be created
o For the dragged image to be downloaded and copied to the desktop
o For an on option saying "Set this image as wallpaper?" to pop up
(this conflicts with the previous entry though)
I also see this bug, with any URL, not only jpg. Currently dragging
.desktop links are broken because the file doesn't get a .desktop
This is a dupe for bug #125104
I've added a patch there.
