I cannot drag a username or password from Keepass to an input field of a website for login reasons. This happens to start with Firefox 44. Earlier Firefox versions did not have this problem. The problem also does not happen with Internet explorer 11.

After upgrading to FF 44.0 dragging URLs from the address bar no longer works as in previous versions:

Dragging a URL to such programs as AnyVideo Converter now fails, dragging URLs into Win7 Notepad also fails - both used to work in prev. versions (dragging it into an Internet Explorer tab does still work)

Dragging selected text to Word or Windows Notepad is no longer possible (manual copy&paste does work)

Same result with all add-ons disabled.

EDIT: Interestingly, it works just fine with LibreOffice Writer and a test prog I created using Python and Pyside.

Looks like something has changed with how FF handles DND in this version. Is that change intentional (possibly to adhere to some standard I as a user couldn't care less about) or simply a bug?

Thanks
