Steps to reproduce

In the latest release of CU, Edge still doesn’t allow pasting files into a contentEditable or an input element.

The user is able to drag & drop the file, but if they want instead to copy and paste it, it doesn’t work in Edge.
You can test it online at http://www.martinezdelizarrondo.com/bugs/paste.html

Firefox works correctly.
Chrome doesn’t paste from desktop on windows (in theory it does now on Mac), but pastes as a file in both elements
