If torbutton is disabled, it is possible to click on the favicon left of the firefox address bar and drag it onto the desktop, thus creating a shortcut to the website. With the torbutton add-on enabled this does not work no matter whether the torbutton is active or not. Problem occurs in Firefox 8.0.1 and above with Torbutton

This is disabled because it is a security risk. Dragging stuff onto the desktop allows the operating system to bypass the Tor state, which means the site you visited is leaked.

Also broken (possibly related) is the ability to drag images out from the browser, and the ability to rearrange tabs. Disabling/uninstalling TorButton returns both of these.

Sorry, I should clarify: "Disabling", as in disabling the extension via the Add-ons management pane (forcibly disabling the plugin).

Firefox is version 13.0.
