Very frustrated with dragging issues in backlog - is there a workaround?

I am trying to prioritize my backlog, and dragging and dropping issues in backlog view is FRUSTRATING! I am on Firefox (presumably most updated version, I allow auto-update) for MacOS 11.2.


Dragging issues and trying to very carefully figure out exactly where to unclick my mouse to have the issue drop into the right place just does not work well for me. It could be I am uncoordinated.

Is there a workaround where I don't have to use the mouse to move issues up and down backlog view? Is there a keyboard way to move an issue up or down in the backlog view?


Any help would be welcome.

Oh, answered my own question. The ticket that will be above whereever I drop will subtly shift (VERY subtly) to indicate that I will be dropping above it. If it doesn't shift, then my selection will drop below it.
