Drag maximized window no longer works

I used to be able to drag maximized windows and it would automatically make them smaller---to whatever their non-full screen but non-minimized size was. But this suddenly stopped happening. It was incredibly useful, and I would like to have that feature active again.

How can I do this?

Please help.
