Upload window frame appears when trying to drop text in editor Answered

In the Editor, when I'm trying to drag and drop text, it doesn't work. In place of dropping the text, the Editor thinks that I want to drop a picture and opens the Upload window frame.
The bug occurs if I drag and drop from the editor to the editor or from external program to the editor.

Solution :
Dropping text should be allowed when the focus is on the text box.

PC : Windows XP.
Browser : Mozilla Firefox 27.0.1

Drag and drop only applies to images. If you want to insert text copy the text to your computer clipboard (ctrl+c / cmd+c) then paste it into the text area of the Instructabkle (ctrl+v / cmd+c).
