"Recents Bar" Blocks Drag & Drop of Bookmarks
I've searched quite a bit, and unsure what to call the bar that appears when clicking in the Address bar. It shows a list of recent URLs, but I can't find an actual name for it in settings either.
In any event, if you try to drag and drop a URL to the bookmarks toolbar, the "recents bar" drops down, and prevents it.
Pic 1 shows the bar in question, and while Pic 2 doesn't add much, it attempts to show the dragging of the URL, but the bookmarks toolbar is blocked.
1. Could someone tell me the name of that "dropdown recents" bar, and perhaps show me how to disable? (I just can't find it in settings so far.)
2. This bar should probably not drop down if you are dragging a URL to bookmarks. (?)
Drag the tab instead of the URL from the location/address bar to the Bookmarks Toolbar to create the bookmark.Read this answer in context 👍 1

Try to just click on what you want.
Not sure I understand how your recommendation helps with dragging a URL from the address bar to create a new bookmark. (?)
The recents dropdown blocks the bookmarks toolbar.

Perfect, that works.
(URL dragging used to work previously.)
