Draggable helper="clone" option causes cursor to lock in IE9

Reported by: aaroncat Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.0.0
Component: ui.draggable Version: 1.8.14
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Using helper="clone" option with draggable function causes the cursor to "lock" until a subsequent click is made on the page. At this time the cursor returns to being reactive to things like hyperlinks and cursor settings in CSS.

Repro Steps:

Using the below markup/code in IE9...

1. Drag the 'Drag Me' element somewhere and release

2. Hover over the 'Press Here' link (notice the cursor has not changed from pointer)

3. Click somewhere on the page

4. Hover over the 'Press Here' link (notice the expected cursor is available)



<script src="jquery-1.5.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script src="jquery-ui-1.8.14.custom.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>


$(document).ready(function () {


helper: "clone"









background: silver;





<div><a href="" target="_blank">Press Here</a></div>

<div id="draggable">Drag Me</div>
