    Is it just my machine acting up or does Safari no longer respond with an
    automatic search page with the text you drop on its icon on the dock?

    After some experimenting, I figured out a pattern.

    When you drag text from a text you've entered in a Safari page, it works.
    But when you drag text from existing text from the page, it doesn't
    Nor does it work when you drag written text from another app.

    Or is there a more general pattern that I'm not seeing?

    It does feel like something fixable because the dragged text does bring Safari to the front.
