Drag and drop does not work in Internet Explorer 9 (IE9).


  • The browser in use is IE9
  • When you drag and drop an attachment into Confluence, nothing happens.

For dragging files from your computer or file system onto your browser, your browser must support the drag-and-drop functionality of HTML5. Browsers such as Firefox 3.5, Safari 4 and Internet Explorer 9 offer limited HTML5 functionality and don't support drag-and-drop.


Similar operation can be achieved by Browsing to, and uploading files from, your computer or network.

Drag and drop is supported in Internet Explorer 10 (desktop mode).
