Steps to reproduce

Known affected file types:

  • *.url
  • *.lnk
  • files with “hidden” attribute

The above file types fail to be resolved when calling WebKitDirectoryReader.readEntries(function(entries)) during drag and drop of parent folder. Drag and drop of individual files of the above types, however, are resolved without issue.

Fiddle that demonstrates the issue:

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Attach addEventListener("drop", function (event)) to an element.
  2. Drop a folder containing *.url or *.lnk or hidden attribute files.
  3. observe that the resulting event.DataTransfer object does not resolve the aforementioned affected file-types during WebKitDirectoryReader.readEntries(function(entries)).
  4. drop those same files themselves (not the parent folder) and observe that those files are now resolved via the DataTransfer object.
