Copy/Paste Image from Firefox

Recommended Posts


I have spotted a bug involved with copying and pasting an image from Firefox (v3.0.1) to Paint.NET (v3.35).

An image which I have spotted it happening on is http://www.union.ic.ac.uk/rcc/canoe/pho ... C05017.JPG. If I copy it using right-click > Copy Image, and then paste it into PDN using Ctrl-Alt-V (paste as new), it is pasted offset by a few pixels - so there is a strip 3 pixels wide transplanted from the left hand edge to the right hand edge.

I would be reporting this as a Firefox bug, except that this doesn't happen if I open up Windows Paint and paste it into that - it comes out fine. Perhaps it is a FF bug - but since it is a quirk with two specific applications, let's try to rule one of them out at least!

Do you have any download managers or clipboard software running?

No. Like I say, I can get around it by copy/pasting into mspaint, and then copy/paste from mspaint into PDN fine.

Hmm. I'll have a look around and see if I can work out what is causing it.

I've also got this bug, and I use Opera as my browser.

I've also made a thread about it, but couldn't come up with a solution there.

Think someone also tested FireFox without experiencing the bug.

What operating system are you running?

I've got "Windows Vista Home Premium" 64-bits.
