Firefox won't let me drag-and-drop files from automatically-opened .zip archives into Windows Explorer

I am using Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-bit (fully updated) and Firefox 68.0 64-bit.
The problem is that when I download any .zip archive and tell Firefox to "Open with... 7-Zip File Manager" (or with Windows Explorer), after the archive has finished downloading and opened in a 7-Zip window (or an Explorer window), I cannot drag-and-drop the file contained in the archive onto a Windows Explorer window or the desktop. No matter where I try to drag the file to, the Windows mouse cursor is always a "cancel" icon and won't let me drop it anywhere.
If I then close the archive window and reopen it from the download folder (C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Local\Temp), now I can drag-and-drop correctly.
I know that this is a problem with Firefox, because if I try the same operation with the same .zip archive using the current version of Tor Browser (8.5.4 32-bit (based on Mozilla Firefox 60.8.0esr)) or with Internet Explorer (11.0.9600.19399) I do not have this problem.
Any help would be appreciated.
