Steps to reproduce

Any <input> found inside of a container which is draggable with HTML5 Drag and Drop requires a double click to be edited rather than a single click.

This occurs in both IE11 and Edge, and apparently has been an issue since IE10 according to historical discussion.

This existed as an issue previously but disappeared:

This does not occur on latest Chrome or Firefox.

    • Same problem here, and I solved like this(SO).
      It seems like you have to force focusing to input/text-area on events.

      Thank you.
