Hi raselahmed6010, that should work except for a very few privileged folders such as the root of the C: drive.

If you have modified how UAC works on your system, that can cause problems with drag and drop. See: Drag and Drop errors with Firefox Launcher Process enabled and Windows UAC disabled - How to Fix.

You also could try this as a workaround:

  • In Firefox: right-click the image > Copy Image
  • In File Explorer: right-click a blank area of the folder or desktop > Paste
