Summary: Safari version provided with Mac OS 10.4.6 displays well
known files (i.e. txt,PDF, etc) when dragging them to
MassTransit Web Client Plugin embedded in the Safari
browser. The problem is NOT apparent in Safari versions
prior to 10.4.6.
OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

The MassTransit Web Plugin allows users to send files to a Remote Server over
LAN/WAN by dragging the files to it.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Safari and open URL: http://masstransit.grouplogic.com
2. Login with username: "apple" and password: "p4ssw*rd".
3. When Prompted, download and install the Plugin.
4. Re-login after the plugin has been installed with above username and
password. The Plug-in should now appear when you login successfully.
5. Click on the "Drop Off" tab of the plugin.
6. Drag a file (i.e. Text or a PDF file) from the desktop or Finder to
The file drag event should get handled by the MassTransit Web Plugin which then
transfers the file over LAN/WAN to designtated Server.
Safari displays the file within the browser.
This problem does not occur in Safari versions prior to Mac OS 10.4.6.
Moreover, in versions 10.4.4 and 10.4.5 MassTransit Plugin did NOT get the
drag/drop event where as in 10.4.6 both MassTransit plugin and Safari receive
the drag/drop event. The latest seed build (#8i116) did not get the drag/drop
In Mac OS X 10.4.9, the behavior appears to have become worse. A previous
workaround was to place any files to be transferred into a folder, and then
drag and drop the folder. On 10.4.9, folders residing on the user's desktop,
and then dragged into Safari, will display the folder's contents.
To be clear we have supported Drag & Drop to a browser with MassTransit
on the Mac for almost 7 years, and every other major browser supports
this functionality (Safari before it broke, Firefox on Mac and Windows,
IE on Windows (& on Mac before MS killed it)).
Losing support for drag & drop to the browser totally breaks a key
feature of our MassTransit product and we will have to instruct all of
our customers to stop using Safari & use Firefox instead. Many of these
customers are large corporations with 100s - 1000s of Macs in the print
media space (Disney, Hallmark, Random House, Conde Nast, Gannett, etc.)
so this is going to be a big headache for us & them! Thus we are happy
to try just about anything you suggest to help resolve this problem &
avoid going down this other path.
