Description Reinout van Schouwen 2005-04-18 15:10:20 UTC
Analogous to middle-dragging in Nautilus, which offers a choice for
linking/copying/moving, middle-dragging an image or link from Epiphany should
offer a choice for linking or downloading.

Doesn't that work this way already? I agree that it would be better to implement
the downloading on the Epiphany side, using XDS to get the drop location. Could
you post the mozilla bug # reference you found for this?

It was this one:
Comment 3 Christian Persch 2005-12-31 21:36:15 UTC
So I think this is a nautilus bug?
Comment 4 Diego Escalante Urrelo (not reading bugmail) 2006-12-15 22:01:09 UTC
Dragging with the middle button doesn't work at all.
