Drag & Drop should not Interrupt Mouseover for Browser GUI

  • Currently when you initiate drag & drop function (click & hold-on to a drag-able item on webpage), the browser GUI will freezes & unable to react to pointer's mouseover event (:hover function). I'm not sure if this is a bug or feature, but this seems to be an illogical & unpractical behavior.

    This behavior is causing a problem for autohide panel & toolbar mods, especially when users try to drag & drop an item from a webpage into browser GUI. All hidden GUI can't be recall & display appropriate zone to allow user drag & drop the item into the intended zone. Example: https://forum.vivaldi.net/post/192272

    So, until Vivaldi developer implant native autohide via mouseover function for browser GUI, we need drag& drop not to interrupt with mouseover function for the browser GUI. If it's a bug then please fix it, else please consider changing this design behavior to allow mouseover event when drag& drop item from webpage to browser GUI.
