My frame tool has changed functionality. I cannot drag items, only the inner brown boxes move. The outer blue content boxes seem to be locked in place. They have different little blue dots that allow me to reshape the box but not drag the box.
We really need a screen shot, since your description is a bit vague. I suspect you mean Selection tool, not Frame tool, and it's possible you are clicking on the Content Grabber donut in the frame, or are using the Direct Select tool (white arrow)
