Why does dragging url to Finder now make webloc with url for name?
On a Mac Prior to version 53.0 when I dragged a url from the url bar to Finder, it created a .webloc file whose name was based on the title of the web page. Now the file name is based on the url itself. This is a regression: Urls are much less likely to tell you what you're looking at than web page titles.
Is there a configuration I can use to fix this, or is it a bug?

If you drag the URL from the location/address bar then you can only get the text this is in the location bar. Maybe try to drag the tab instead.
Dragging the tab doesn't work. Please bear in mind that this is a REGRESSION: Before the most recent version, this worked as I expect. Now it doesn't.
Thanks for the referral cor-el.
I have basically the same issue. The timing of us both having this problem doesn't seem to be coincidence.

Let's get this figured out, and solve it. FredMcD recommended doing a reinstall, while renaming integral folders. Although I'd like a more simple fix if that was possible.
As a complete newbie, I did not find another way to get in here than by posting this matter for the third time, sorry for that. You can find my contribution here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1158515 A contributer of the German forum Camp Firefox assured me that the problem does NOT appear on his Windows machine (I am on Mac OS X 10.9.5). Can anybody confirm this?
