Unable to copy images into other programs
Whenever i Copy am image, be in with Ctrl+C or RMB+Copy Image it doesn't do anything (or copies in the wrong format). On Chrome i can easily Copy an image and Paste it into skype, pushbullet or paint but not in Firefox. Any fix for this? Can i change the way Copy works in Firefox on about:config? This is a big deal for me as i share/copypaste a lot of images from my browser daily.

Hi Gokki, I have also the same config as I can see yours system have ,so I tried to produce copy pasting from different image sources. however It seems working fine at my end. So can you do sites from where you are taking image ,well it helps a lot in order to much appropriate reproduction.
Also Think to do this in Safe Mode and see any change there ? Turn off Hardware acceleration from Menu > options > Advanced > Uncheck "Use hardware acceleration when available option" .
* Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window
Hello, I've tried in normal and safe mode, same result:
1. Go to http://i.imgur.com/W92x3Z8.jpg (random imgur image, it's safe). 2. Ctrl+C on the image does nothing. Copy&Pasting directly from Windows 10's Image Viewer and it works. Same for Chrome. 3. Selecting "Copy Image" by right-clicking on the image does seem to add something to the clipboard but trying to Ctrl+V onto a Skype chat does nothing.
Also tried this with Windows Paint and am unable to Ctrl+C->Ctrl+V into it. However, right-clicking and "Copy Image" then Ctrl+V into Paint works.
On a side note, i had a screenshot program that was saving images to clipboard in some weird formats, only when I've selected for the screenshots to be captured in BMP that i was able to paste into Skype. So i think Firefox doesn't copy images by Ctrl+C and rightclicking+"Copy Image" copies them in a weird format. My question thus leads to how i can change the clipboard format that FIrefox gives it.

The image you posted above is copied to the clipboard as I can paste it in a Firefox window that has content editable enabled (designmode=on). I don't know what flavors Firefox places on the clipboard in this case.
