Trying to drag text in MIDAS from one location in the editor window to an other does nothing. On windows you get a cursor indicating this as impossible, on Mac the cursor remains the insert cursor but when dropping the text is allways dropped to its original position. In earlier builds (months ago) this worked.

Reproducible: Always

When did this regress?  Was it when bug 237964 landed?  If so, could you mark it as blocking bug 237964?

I'm not sure, when the regression begun. I detected it with the nightly from 31 August, which is near to the beginning of the activities of bug 237964; so I set the blocking.

In Nightly from it is still: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.9a9pre) Gecko/2007100208

I should download a new nightly and test that too.

With newest nightly Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; de-DE; rv:1.9a9pre) Gecko/2007102008 it is still the same.
Is this another only-in-XULRunner bug (e.g., like bug 391429)?  

I get a cursor and have no issues drag-dropping on http://www.mozilla.org/editor/midasdemo/ in my Camino trunk build and today's Fx trunk nighty.

I 've tested it in XulRunner only, but I also might test at home using minefield instead of Xulrunner to launch the XUL application to see, whether it occurs there too.

Same result, when using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; de-DE; rv:1.9a8pre) Gecko/2007090104 Minefield/3.0a8pre instead of XulRunner.

Also the same with Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; de-DE; rv:1.9a9pre) Gecko/2007102804 Minefield/3.0a9pre
I don't see this on [Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9a9pre) Gecko/2007102510 Minefield/3.0a9pre], so I'm changing the OS field to Mac.
OS: All → Mac OS X

In XULRUnner Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O 10.4; en-US; rv:1.9a9pre) Gecko/2007110108 the problem seems to be partially fixed. I must ask my coworker when he is back from vacation what's the exact difference between the two situations of our XUL application. This might help to create a simple test case.
I don't see this in [Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.4; en-US; rv:1.9a9pre) Gecko/2007110404 Minefield/3.0a9pre] either. Xulrunner only?

Same as on Mac also on Windows with XulRunner: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a9pre) Gecko/2007110410 so changing OS field from Mac to All, because it is at least on Mac and Win; not tested anywhere else.
OS: Mac OS X → All

I can't reproduce on Mac or Windows either.

I wasn't able to reproduce this issue on the latest Firefox release (45.0.1, Build ID 20160315153207) or the latest Nightly (48.0a1, Build ID 20160403030243) using the MIDAS demo (http://www.mozilla.org/editor/midasdemo/). Could you please retest this issue on the latest Firefox release and Nightly and provide your results? When doing this please use a clean, new profile.
