Description

Currently, the code in nsContentAreaDragDrop.cpp isn't called when dragging 
images in Composer.  I'm guessing that we are gonna need to make some XP code 
changes to insert the FilePromise flavor into the nsITransferable for image 
drags within Composer.

Am I on the right track here?

Simon, if you are overloaded, I can work on this if you give me some pointers 
on how to do it.  If you wanna attack it yourself, pl feel free to take the bug 
from me...  :-)

Futuring this for now after chatting with Simon about this.  This is low
priority compared to other Photon stuff.  We had a difficult time coming up with
scenarios where users would want to drag/drop images on a page in Composer.

If anyone feels strongly about this, please comment.

It would be great to work on Composer,
as it is a very good HTML editor.

there is also open bug #228199 which has to do with yours.
In fact maybe someone can work on all 15 bugs you get when
querying "composer image" in bugzilla ?

I'm new here so I have no clue on how all-this-dev-stuff work,
and there seems to have no UML like diagrams of the 
functionnalities and code organization => it will take too long
to dig the secrets and fix bugs for me.
