when i copy info from a page (such as a recipe), it only shows the first picture or image and pastes that image for all of the subsequent images.

even if i copy the pics individually, it still posts the first pic. sometimes it's the print icon.

Does this happen on all sites or only certain sites?

Does it matter what you are pasting into, e.g., Microsoft Word, an HTML editor, etc.?


In case the problem is caused by one of your add-ons, could you try Firefox's Safe Mode? This is a standard diagnostic step to bypass interference by extensions (and some custom settings).

First, I recommend backing up your Firefox settings in case something goes wrong. See Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles. (You can copy your entire Firefox profile folder somewhere outside of the Mozilla folder.)

Next, restart Firefox in Firefox's Safe Mode (Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode) using

Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled

In the dialog, click "Start in Safe Mode."

If the site works correctly, this points to one of your extensions or custom settings as the problem.

To disable plugins as well, you can use this tab:

orange Firefox button or classic Tools menu > Add-ons > Plugins category

Any change?
