Question

Downloads dragged and dropped from Firefox download window into Outlook e-mail show as file location text.

I have a user who normally can drag files from Firefox's Download window into an e-mail in Outlook and it creates an attachment of that file in the e-mail. However, lately, the dragged .pdf or whatever file only shows up as a text file location like:

\\file:%Downloads%\randomfile.pdf

It's not a link either, it's just the text.

I've tried doing a repair of Outlook. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox 19. I've tested dragging items from the desktop to the e-mail and it works fine. I can't drag and drop from the Downloads window to the desktop.

I just wanted to add this user is using Windows XP Pro.
