Screen recording of problem

Safari Version 13.0.1
macOS Version 10.14.6 (18G95)

While dragging a draggable element, `event.altKey` should change to true/false depending if I hold the option key on my Mac.

In Firefox, I can start a drag, and then toggle the option key to see the altKey value change from false to true. I do not need to have the option key pressed before I start dragging.

In Safari, I have to start the drag operation with option already held down in order for the MouseEvent's altKey property to be true. If I let go of the option key, the altKey value never changes. 

In Safari, if I start a drag event without holding the option key down, the MouseEvent's altKey property will never change. 

Here is a video logging out the value of altKey as I dragEnter and dragOver the items on the left. 

The item I am dragging has the following in its dragStart handler

e.dataTransfer.effectAllowed = 'copyMove'
e.dataTransfer.dropEffect = 'move'

the item I am dropping on has the following events. e.altKey will *always* be false in webkit if I don't start the drag operation with option held down. It will *always* be true if I start the drag operation with option held down.

function dropHandler(e) {
  e.dataTransfer.effectAllowed = 'copyMove'
  // If we're copying
  if (e.altKey) {
    fieldCopyHandler(oldDocumentId, thisDocumentId, fieldId)
  } else {
    fieldMoveHandler(oldDocumentId, thisDocumentId, fieldId)

function dragEnterHandler(e) {

function dragOverHandler(e) {

I have attached a video
