I recently did a fresh install to upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04. I have thunderbird 14.0

Thunderbird isn't letting me move an email to a folder by dragging it. How do I turn this [back] on? Or is this a bug?

One note (that may be important): I saved my .thunderbird folder from my 11.10 install and moved it over the default folder (so as to not need to set up everything again).

Try this Add on – Mitch Jul 19 '12 at 15:44
@Mitch That's the opposite of what I want. That addon seems to be made to disable drag and drop. I want to enable it. BTW, I did double check and that add on is not currently installed – David Oneill Jul 19 '12 at 15:57

After an update and reboot, it is now working.
