Web Client - Columns Can't be Resized on the Fly

Bug Description

Evergreen 3.1

We've had multiple requests from our libraries asking to be able to re-size columns on the fly like they could in the xul client.

If you hover over the edge of a column the drag icon does currently appear. Nothing happens when you try to drag the column edge.

One scenario that has come up a few times is when an item has a long title and staff need to see the full title (usually in Items Out). Staff are finding the current procedure time consuming compared to simply dragging the edge of the column.

Procedure in Web Client:
1. Go to Column Picker
2. Select Manage Column Widths
3. Expanding the Title field
4. Viewing the full title
5. Shrink the Title field (so info in other columns can still be read)
6. Go to Column Picker
7. Select Save Columns

If quicker column-resizing is hard to achieve, hover-over tooltips could help in this scenario:

- Bug #1740412 (for tooltips on all grids)

- Bug #1772206 (adds tooltips for a specific case; though we probably need a generic solution built into egGrid, as Galen mentions on bug #1721144)

We should probably remove the code that causes the mouse cursor "move" and "resize" icons, since those functions aren't supported yet:

408: cursor: move;
428: cursor: col-resize;
434: cursor: w-resize;
437: cursor: e-resize;
