Today i installed firefox 24. I tried to drag & drop a picture from google pictures to the program tag & rename. That didn't work. Drag & drop to my desktop works ok.

Drag & drop from internet explorer to tag & rename works fine.

Till today i had a nightly firefox and there drag & drop works fine. But after the last update from the nightly firefox was a lot slower.

So i got back to firefox 24.

I have a 64 bit pc with windows 8.

I hope someone can help me

Unfortunally, this was not a solution

I tried what you said and it is true that the image directly dragging out a white box, but I'll give you a solution to see if it works. Instead of dragging the image directly, first select "View Image", and once you open the image in the browser, drag image to the 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)

Note that you can middle-click "View Image" in the right-click context menu to open the image in a new tab.
