Description

Still cannot drag and drop web-parts in Firefox. Why is this still an issue, it was a known issue in VS 2007. We need this to work and we were depending on it to be fixed in this release. It is the fundamental core of our application architecture.

This will force us to go with 3rd party web-part tools, but the third party tools do not have the performance that your web-parts have. WE NEED THIS TO WORK, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE.

-----------------------------------------Added---------------------------------------------
This is absolutely ridiculous because it has been fixed in the Microsoft ASP.NET Futures (May 2007) found at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=9323777E-FE78-430C-AD92-D5BE5B5EAD98&displaylang=en.

The reason given for the lack of FireFox support in VS 08 was that your team didn’t have time to include the fix, but the fix is complete in the above link. Now you are choosing not to support this. It looks to me as if you are purposely not supporting FireFox.

Hi,
With the same issue,
I'm waiting for Microsoft more than 3 years,
Till now, It didn't work.
I wonder if I was wrong when choose the .net is my framework.
I think, if it doesn't work, please turn it off so I can get another solutions.
I were lost a lot time to study, research, ... and now I have no thing, Web Part doesn't work in Fire Fox.

But it was fixed in the "Microsoft ASP.NET Futures (May 2007)" release.

Will this fix still be compatible in VS 2010?

It still begs the question, if it was fixed 3 years ago, why wasn't the fix transitioned to this release?

The web parts drag and drop feature was part of a broader set of early AJAX technologies. Integration of web parts into the ASP.NET AJAX stack was ultimately cut due to the complexities of fully enabling AJAX functionality for web parts - the potential feature set for such integration included much more than just enhanced drag-and-drop. For example at one point there were plans for a pure client-side connection model, but the complexities of trying to integrate that into the existing server-side connections model were non-trivial.

As is frequently the case in software development there are always more feature requests and improvements than there are resources to commit to such changes. As a result the decision was made to cut the entire Web Parts AJAX integration feature - hence the reason the improved drag-and-drop integration was never formally implemented.

As part of the ongoing process for the VS 2010 release we review and consider historical feedback for inclusion in the product. Ideally we would be able to address all requested new features, however we do have to limit the ones that ultimately are implemented.

As a result after reviewing this request we decided not to accept it for inclusion in the next product release.

Thank you though for submitting your suggestion via Connect.

Use the old ASP.NET Futures library.
