Drag and drop from browser bug?

Thought this used to work? Do earlier versions set the dragdata correctly
when you drag and drop an image from the browser?

Testing on OSX - but images that you can successfully drag and drop onto the
desktop - but you are unable to get useful data out of the dragdata. I'd
expect that the dragdata ["files"] would be set to the url of the image -
but it is empty and the dragdata ["text"] is vaguely related to the url of
the image in that it often is - but sometimes can be a useless piece of
javaScript like "javascript:void(0);". The Finder obviously handles the
dragdata correctly - so is this an OSX bug or?
