1. Go to any page that links to a script, style, image or hyperlink
2. Open Developer Tools window, select Elements tab
3. Hover over a link (shown by the underline) and note the tooltip
4. Drag the link to a new tab and note the url
What is the expected result?
For example the <link rel="icon" type="image/vnd.microsoft.icon" href="http://www.gstatic.com/codesite/ph/images/phosting.ico"> in the head of this page, Hovering should show http://www.gstatic.com/codesite/ph/images/phosting.ico
Dragging the link should open a new tab for the icon.
What happens instead?
Hovering shows "http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/entry/http://www.gstatic.com/codesite/ph/images/hosting.ico"
(the text includes square characters)
Dragging the link shows the same incorrect url as above, and as a result the server sends a 404 Error page (or in google code's case redirects you to the home page).
This is an upstreaming of http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=48932
