Drag and Drop Broken - Microsoft Edge
Problem reported by John Marx - August 3, 2017 at 12:40 PM
Submitted
I was going to submit that it would  be great if on drag and drop it could be transparent as you can't see the folder you are dragging to. I switched to Chrome "to just see" and it is transparent. This means it is there and a complete browser inconsistency. I have also tested in Firefox and it works so know this is truly a bug too be fixed.
 
Looking at the differences:
- Edge shows the message in a giant blue box
- Chrome/Firefox show the message as an email icon (transparent)

Hello John,
 
This is an unfortunate case where Edge and Internet Explorer don't follow the standards very well and don't support changing the image of a drag object, so the browser just shows the element being dragged.

I wonder why I get an icon in Yahoo mail and others using Edge then. This is the only reason I reported it as other browsers seem to have figured it out (Note: I truly HATE Yahoo Mail but they can do it so I figured the product I support should as well).

Its possible Yahoo mail has custom handling for their drag and drop and doesn't use the html standard. I had found bug reports on the Edge developer site about issues with their implementation of drag and drop and they just haven't fixed the issues yet or basically marked them as won't fix.
