    I have read other threads and tried every proposed solution I could find here, but no success.

    Basically I need to disable drag&drop of any of the elements of the page (e.g. website menu links, etc.), of the browser (e.g. address from the address bar etc.), as well as the editor's menu itself.

    For this case you can just cancel the DOM drop event of the editable element:
    <telerik:RadEditor runat="server" ID="RadEditor1" OnClientLoad="OnClientLoad">
        function OnClientLoad(sender, args) {
            $telerik.$(sender.get_contentArea()).bind("drop", function (ev) {

    You can also find here a discussion on the matter—http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3033130/contenteditable-div-disabling-drag-and-drop.
