VisualEditor: Disable drag-and-drop of non-media content in Firefox until we support that
Closed, ResolvedPublic


What it says on the tin; if you do nothing but rearrange text, the VE does not recognise it as an alteration and refuses to let you save.

This only happens with drag-and-drop. VE will let you save a text rearrangement done with Ctrl-X, Ctrl-V, or Right-click/Cut, Right-click/Paste.

Bug 49981 is about actually supporting this; until we do, we should disable it appearing to try to work in Firefox, only to not do so (because it's disabled).

fwiw I'm using Firefox and... it seems to work? The first post is not very descriptive so I don't know what to test. Happy to help.

The drag-and-drop operation previously had the appearance of being successful, in that the text would change to the dropped position. After the text was moved, the save button wasnt enabled.

Now the text can only be picked up and dragged around, but the text move operation is cancelled when the text is dropped.

The bug has been fixed, and I am closing as such. Probably as part of another piece of related work.

For bonus points, VE shouldnt allow the text to be picked up and dragged. I've opened that as an enhancement bug 54757.
