Why doesn't the browser follow links dropped on it any more- but when on imgur?

0. Type about: in your browser's address bar

1. Drag/drop a link into the window

2. Browser follows link


0. Now try an imgur page.

1. Drag/drop a link into the window

2. Browser thinks nothing happened.

Yes, this.


The latest version of imgur breaks url drag/drop.  As someone who browses by dragging links from one window to another, it's pretty annoying.


FWIW, you can work around it by dropping on the browser tab rather than the imgur page.
