Drag text/URLs into address bar

In at least FireFox and Chrome, I can highlight/drag a URL from one application into the browser address bar. Doesn’t work in Brave. This is handy because it prevents me from having to copy/paste the URL, allowing me to keep whatever is currently in my clipboard.

I can tell that Brave does handle click/drag for text because I can drag text from one application into a textbox like the one I am typing in right now. Seems like all that’s missing is a listener being attached to the address bar.

Hi Bob - I mean, “not bob”,
Can you tell me if you’re using the current live release or the beta/developer builds?

This should do it:

Brave: 0.25.2
V8: 6.9.427.23
rev: 8ea2a9ce5ca329478186e6393e07f1cf87d34a22
Muon: 8.1.8
OS Release: 6.1.7601
Update Channel: Release
OS Architecture: x64
OS Platform: Microsoft Windows
Node.js: 7.9.0
Brave Sync: v1.4.2
libchromiumcontent: 69.0.3497.100

Well there’s your problem right there - you should be on the beta!
