Having downloaded latest version of Firefox Beta from site a problem occurred when copying from a website photos (images) do not transfer (a blank outline of the image shows in the document). There appear to be a number of other users asking about the same problem in recent weeks. The solution sent in reply to my question was to reset Firefox to factory settings. Although I have just installed in and although I have not changed the settings, I have followed this suggestion. THIS HAS NOT SOLVED THE PROBLEM.

I tried what you said and it is true that pasting the image directly out a white box, but I'll give you a solution to see if it works. Instead of copying the image directly, first select "View Image", and once you open the image in the browser, select copy image and paste into your document. In this way I have not had any problems with the images and the websites I've tried.

You can download the latest version of Firefox from my site (link removed by moderator)
