Default Drag & drop of links from Firefox doesn't work anymore.

Drag and drop of links works from Microsoft Edge, but not from Firefox.

Why? Firefox refuses to accept drag and drop if UAC is disabled.
Solution. Enable UAC in Windows.

I used an hour to solve this issue, so I'll record it here. Hopefully other users will solve this issue quickly.

@xpssrg: DragDrop does only work in Windows when both applications are the same leve of *security/privilege* as part of security model of Windows. A lower priviliged container cannot read the higher priviliged container clipboard for example. Also not possible to share via drag/drop.

You should not run JDownloader as admin, nor firefox
