Drag to save image returns 403

I am having an issue saving images from that just began today. This does not occur on other websites (tested imgur, twitter, wikipedia)

Steps to reproduce: - Open an artwork on Pixiv, e.g. - Drag and drop the image to an Windows Explorer window Expected behavior: - Image 87320989_p0_master1200.jpg, 874kb, is saved Actual behavior: - Image 87320989_p0_master1200.jpg, 146bytes, is saved Contents of the "jpg" when opened in notepad are:

<head><title>403 Forbidden</title></head>
<center><h1>403 Forbidden</h1></center>

This also occurs with right click on image>Copy Image and pasting into Windows Explorer. Curiously enough, right click on image>Copy Image then pasting into Microsoft Paint shows the image data. Image saves correctly with right click on image>Save Image As. Image saves correctly with right click on image>View Image, then Ctrl+S.

Firefox doesn't appear to try and save the cached image I have open, and I think it's sending another request missing a referrer which causes the 403.

Steps tried: - Safe Mode with all add-ons disabled: failure - Private browsing window: failure - New profile: failure - Refresh new profile: failure - Run Firefox as Admin: failure - Logging in/out of Pixiv: failure - Clear cookies/cache: failure
