Can't reproduce neither in the beta nor trunk, is this happening with any theme? What're the exact steps you're taking? Are you clicking on the widget area in question before dragging the widget over?

I activated Twenty Eleven, for example, immediately navigated to Appearance > Widgets, clicked on the Footer Widget Area and then dragged a widget over without problems.

Did I imagine previously being able to drag a widget onto the title, or just underneath without having to click first, though?

I updated from last stable release to last beta release.
I dunno if before was able to drag and drop widget cause I had few widget already set and configured.
So now I was playing with new beta release and tryied to rearrange widget and discovered they weren't working.
In other themes, they do not work too (maybe cause new engine?) but at least I am able to click on single widget and edit from the single page editing.
Is there any other thing I can do/check ?
Maybe I am missing some configuration files?
It should be a javascript ... now I will try to check if there is some options in my browser that prevent JS scripting to work, but I do not think so.

using javascript console in google chrome I get this message:
event.returnValue is deprecated. Please use the standard event.preventDefault() instead.

Perhaps you have accessibility mode enabled? In this mode, drag-and-drop is disabled in favor of clickable/tappable actions. Accessibility is currently broken, see #26165

where to check if accessibility mode is enabled?
(I have seen that in jetpack module I can drag and drop social buttons)
Only in widget area it seems I cannot drag and move widgets.

PS I have Java updated to last version too

I have checked accessibility mode i the admin panel.
With accessibility mode enabled I cannot drag and drop and even cannot click on widget.
With accessibility mode disabled I can do both things ...
there is something I do not understand ... in accessibility mode option ...

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

The accessibility mode (and no-js mode) were just fixed in [26439]. In both modes drag/drop is disabled and there are links to add or edit a widget.

This should be fixed now, feel free to reopen if something doesn't work as expected.
