Anyone had success getting this extension to work with the nightly trunk builds? I thought it was working with a recent build, but it's not working as of 2004-12-19. I know it's early in the life of this trunk, but I've had success with quite a few of my favorite extensions so far.

Must have extension, so addicted to it. Thanks a lot!! :)

Would it be possible to add the following?
- open tab next to current tab instead of at the end
- configurable options for drag direction like in Greenbrowser (e.g. down opens in new window, right in new tab, left save as etc.)

Look at the Settings of Super Drag&Go. You can specify which folder images will be stored when you drag them.

You ain't understading what I am saying. If I do that then IMAGES with URLs embedded do not work.

A handy extension.

How about adding the ability to specify files in upload fields via drag & drop?

The "Drag And Drop Upload" extension no longer works. And apparently there were some challenges getting it to work with Gmail.

Dear Sirs:

Thank you for providing such a convenient extension. However, it is pointted by Piro (*1), the author of TBE, that this extension reproduces bug 285438--Drag and drop gestures can be hijacked to load priviliged xul--.

Bug 285438 was fixed in Firefox 1.0.2 and Mozilla 1.7.6. But with this extension, even Firefox 1.0.4 can be hijacked by drag and drop gestures.

The following code is an easy patch for SuperDragAndGo-0.2.4d1.xpi. It only works with Firefox 1.0.2 (and Mozilla 1.7.6?) or later. (I removed some whitespaces from the following code.)

Code: Select all
--- content/superdrag.js   Mon Oct 11 09:16:20 2004
+++ content/superdrag.js   Sun May 15 05:18:09 2005
@@ -137,2 +137,3 @@
     {//default action: open it to a new tab
+        getBrowser().dragDropSecurityCheck(aEvent, aDragSession, uri)

Please fix this security hall.

Thank you.

Hey, so I'm using firefox 1.04, and sometimes links load in the foreground, and sometimes they load in the background.. Why is that? Is there any way to get the plugin to be consistant?

it would be great to add this feature to SD&G: for example if I drag the link to the up, it will open in a new tab on the foreground and if I drag it to the bottom, it will open in the background. It worked in your old releases but with a new version, this functionality disappeared. Was it made intentionaly or have I installed another plugin which make this trip to fail? thanks

I don't know whether this was noticed before, it was only mentioned one time before in this thread and wasn't really answered:

Did you all know, that Super Drag and Go saves all images not only in the folder which you choose, but also in the System %temp% folder? (Type %temp% in the Adress Bar of the Windows Explorer to find this folder)
And the images stay there untill you delete them manually!
(And this folder is also used by some other Win-intern functions such as print preview of temporary images (e.g. print from web directly) in which you get a nice thumbnail overview over all images recently saved by super drag and go.... may try to avoid this overview in some cases :wink: )

Would be fine, if this get's fixed!

In FF 1.05 dragging a search places the resulting tab in the forground, but checking the first option (load tabs for links and text links in foreground does not seem to have any effect) as these are still loaded in the background. Is this working?

I see, dragging up does put the link in a new tab, dragging down does not. Cool.
