Firefox Deer Park Unix: turning off drag&drop? (paper sheet icon)

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by ted@loft.tnolan.com (Ted Nolan, Feb 2, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    I'm running Firefox Deer Park on FreeBSD. I'm running neither gnome nor KDE,
    just the enlightenment window manager, and I have the PrefBar extension
    installed.

    I've got a pretty slow machine, and often when I get ahead of Firefox, or
    just fumble finger the mouse, I get the icon of a sheet of paper which
    follows the mouse and more or less freezes things up until I can get it
    to go away. I gather this is some sort of drag & drop facility, something
    for which I have absolutely no use. Is there some way to disable this?
    I've looked in preferences and "about:config" without seeing anything which
    looks promising...

    Thanks!

    Ted
