Comment (by imath):

 Thanks for your feedback hnla, 05.patch is fixing Edge and prevents any
 side effects on other browsers/device.

 The problem is so far the UI was acting right:

 - no html5 support or mobile /touch > no "Drop your file here"
 - if html5 support & ! mobile/touch > "Drop your file here" is visible

 if we add the display: block rule to all browsers and not only to Edge:
 - iPhone gets a silly info "Drop your file here" > how can you drag & drop
 on mobile ???
 - i'm almost pretty sure browsers not supporting html5 would also get this
 silly info.

 So i'm fine with any other solution as long as we don't display a silly
 info to the user!

 Remember: a user can't drag and drop on mobile or in browsers not
 supporting html5... :)
