Both Internet Explorer and Firefox are rendered by JAWS using a virtual browser. In fact, I can drag and drop objects on the IRS webpage and alike using Firefox, but its much trickier to do using IE.
Either way, drag and drop is a bit finicky, but it’s awesome when it works. One has greatest probability of success when dragging and dropping on the same screen.

Hi, Brian. Here’s what I think is happening. When Firefox is opened in JAWS, it is opened in a “virtual view”. This means that the user is not interacting directly with the screen. Instead, the user is interacting with the contents of a buffer, a virtual screen. I can drag and drop in Internet Explorer, which is not in a “virtual view”, but not in Firefox.
