Drag-and-drop of a reference in a set of sequential references to elsewhere in the sequence doesn't work (but cut-and-paste does)
Open, NormalPublic8 Story Points

Description

Say I want to change the order in which some sources are referenced (like the ones in the Geography section of my sandbox).
I'm supposed to simply click on one ref number, drag it and then drop it elsewhere. This works quite smoothly if I drop the ref at the beginning or at the end of the row of references.
However, in some browsers (tried in Firefox and Chrome) it is quite difficult to place one ref among others. The cursor turns into a stop sign which seems to suggest that's not allowed at all. (The behavior in Safari confuses me. I don't even understand if I'm actually dragging anything there.)
