Dragging the map doesn't work :-(

Google Maps in Safari is missing the feature I like most. In FireFox I can click, hold, and drag the map around. In Safari I have to use the little move buttons and they often move the map more than I want it to. Hopefully this feature works in Safari soon.

That's strange -- dragging works great for me in Safari. Are you using a non-default mouse driver, or any unusual plugins?

I, too, cannot drag the map in Safari. It works fine in Firefox.

-- 10.3.8 with all current updates, no mouse/trackpad drivers loaded, typical suite of Internet plugins (real, wmv, divx)

I use Privoxy to filter web content and I use iScroll2 to add two finger scrolling functionality to my trackpad. To check if either was a problem, I uninstalled iScroll2 and turned off Privoxy. I still can not drag the google maps in Safari, I can only scroll with their buttons.

Dragging the maps works fine in FireFox with Privoxy on and iScroll2 installed.

I'm using Safari 1.2.4 on OS X 10.3.8 on a PowerBook if that helps.
