QGIS doc says that (never tried though) there were two browser panels in QGIS application to help easily move file location.
AFAICS, It's currently impossible to move file from one browser to the second, with drag-and-drop. It however seems to work well between databases (PG and Spatialite).
I suppose something has been broken meanwhile. set it as blocker.

Jürgen, by changing the category to 'Documentation and Help', do you mean that the issue is in the doc (not the application) and the drag-and-drop was not supposed to be?
Yes - the two browser windows are meant to make it easier to drag stuff to distant locations (which you could also do with just one window - but with a lot of scrolling while dragging). The browser window currently does not allow copying or moving files - but you can drag to import (eg. a shapefile to a database).
