Unable to Drag Javascript Links

Although I am able to drag and drop HTML links, I am no longer able to drag
Javascript links.

In the past, I have been able to drag a link from such places as the
TinyURL! link on http://tinyurl.com to my Links Toolbar. Now I can't. When
I try to drag any Javascript link, my cursor does not change the same way it
does for an HTML link. I see a hand icon for both link types. When I try
to drag a Javascript link, it changes from a hand to an arrow as soon as I
pull the cursor away from the link.

Is this problem new to WinXP SP2? Has one of my settings changed? Has
Norton Internet Security become more actively involved?

Thanks for any ideas!

I am having the same trouble and was wondering if Windows SPK2 was the
cause?

or Norton which I recently upgraded.

If tried everything I know to do.

AHA!

I was able to solve my problem of draging javascript links to the toolbar
by adding the site in question to my "Trusted Sites" in IE6.

Click on TOOLS
then INTERNET OPTIONS
click the SECURITY tab
Highlight TRUSTED
click on SITES...

then add the web address of the site you are trying to drag the javascript
link from.

BE SURE IT IS A WEBSITE YOU TRUST!!!!!!!
