Copy&Pase of images does not work for GIF-images that use transparency (GIF87a). When copying the image of the given URL to the clipboard (rightclick-menu->"Copy Image") and pasting it anywhere, you always get a black background (the image at the given URL is totally black as also the drawing itself is black). I do not know the specifics of the Windows clipboard and how it handles images, but if transparency is a problem, at least a white background should be used, sothat the image appears as in the browser. The image is taken from: http://edocs.bea.com/manager/mgr20/intref/overview.htm I tried this with 2 GIF-images and got the same result (black background). PNG transparency seems to work. InternetExplorer produces the expected result (even;-).

This might be related to 201198....but I can't recreate the bug.....
This bug still exists in the latest Firefox build. It's annoying, as IE does this correctly.
