    Why does Drag and Drop not work in IE7?

    I usually use FF and I can drag and drop with it but when I use IE7 I can't highlight text and drop it into a search box like I think previous versions would do, I have to copy and paste instead? I have 2 computers and have the same problem on both. Is this feature disabled in IE7?
