As I am working with RichFaces I run in a situation where a realy cool Drag&Drop feature supported by RichFaces works fine in Firefox but did not work in Internet Explorer.

<rich:dropSupport id="myprojects" acceptedTypes="project"
The problem was that the action "mydrop_action" seems not to be processed in IE but works fine in Firefox. If you have same problem the solution would be easy. You simply need to change the navigation rule in your faces-config.xml file. You only need to add a <redirect /> tag to the corresponding navigatino rule. So I changed my rule to:
And this soved the problem. Now the code works in firefox and IE. And RichFaces are really cool!
