Drag-drop bookmarking broken, Firefox 102.0 (64 bit)
I do not know which update began exhibiting this apparent reversion bug, as i have just returned home from several weeks in the hospital due to a heart attack, and do not know how many updates i missed.
When doing a drag-drop of a URL from either a link on a page OR the address line at the top of the browser, I will receive a "sanity failure" error, ranging from an empty NON-URL file, to an OS error complaining about being unable to access an attempted directory destination.
If the link I am dragging is bereft of illegal characters (i.e., ":" -- a colon), the action will succeed.
If there IS a colon, the text to the LEFT of the colon will become the filename. The colon and everything to its right will be truncated. And, the file will be a zero-byte file of unknown (to me) type.
Other illegal characters in the page's Title field will produce more dramatic misbehavior.
PLEASE revert to the previous behavior (i.e., filtering the Title before creating the filename for the bookmark file)!
Earlier versions of Firefox (again, I do not know when this began) NEVER exhibited this behavior.
