(multiple pages): Using the select+click anchor method of changing item order, there is no easy way to move an item to the bottom of the list
On pages like firewall rules and IPsec, using the select-and-click-anchor method of relocating places the target position above the item row where the anchor was clicked.
Since there is no anchor below the list, there is no way to move an item to the bottom row. You can move an item above the last row, and then move the last item above that as a workaround.
For pages that support drag-and-drop that can be used instead and has no problems.
Not sure how best to address this. Putting a single anchor below the list would look weird, and changing the behavior so it moves under would make moving to the top column a problem instead.
Also there is no visual indicator of where the rule will move. On 2.2.x and before, hovering over the "move here" icon made the cell borders dark between the rows to indicate where the item was being moved.

Hold down the shift key to move checked items AFTER the row in which anchor icon is clicked.
Tool-tip changes from "before" to "after" when shift key is pressed
infoblock hint text has been updated to include this feature

It does work, though I'd be happier if there were some other visual indicator of where the rule will drop. At least when I tested, to see the tooltip text change you had to press shift before making the tooltip appear, which wasn't very helpful. There is a note in the info panel but it's not something people will see right away since it's collapsed. Perhaps the shift+click note should be added to the tooltip directly. "Move checked rules above this one. Shift+Click to move checked rules below." and then when shift is pressed: "Move checked rules below this one. Release shift to move checked rules above."
I still miss the thick line from earlier versions showing where they'd drop, but that may be impossible/impractical now.
