    drag & drop issues

    My system was running well until I started having drag & drop issues ie:

    o cannot drag messages within Thunderbird or to Explorer or Desktop
    o cannot re-arrange tabs in Firefox (ok on Chrome and Edge)
    o cannot drag URL from Firefox or Chrome to Explorer or Desktop (Edge is ok)
    o cannot drag images from Firefox or Chrome to Explorer or Desktop (Edge is ok)

    Debugging I tried:

    o Creating a new account was of no help.
    o Uninstalled Firefox, removed profile, and re-installed was of no help.

    Any thoughts welcome !

    Thanks !

    Did you try draging and then hitting the escape key while dragging?
