Steps to reproduce

On Microsoft Edge dragging and dropping text between browser tabs does not work.

The only way it seems to work is to drag the text and while still holding the mouse button press CTRL + TAB to switch to the tab you want to place the text in, and then release the text in the new tab in the text box.

What should happen and even works in all other browsers is when dragging text over the tab bar at the top when you place the text over the tab you want to go to it should make that tab active, however in edge this does not happen.
