This doesn't respect the Apple Interface guidelines at all and it is very annoying, needs first to drag on the desktop and then in the appropriate document ...

assuming a dupe, but HIG stuff catches my eye.
probably bug 279270

When you drag, we put both the image and the text in the drag data. The app you're dropping into then picks which one it wants. Sounds like it's just picking the "wrong" one (not the one you want it to pick).
depend bug234921 ?

I think Boris Zbarsky hits the point and this bug should be marked invalid and closed.
(In reply to comment #8) > I think Boris Zbarsky hits the point and this bug should be marked invalid and > closed. No, read the discussion in bug 279270, specifically bug 279270 comment 11 (this is basically the drag version of that bug). The most reasonable workable fix that does what the user intends is to not put the url in the drag at all (since "ordering" the image before text may not help).
Josh, who's doing Mac drag stuff in Core these days now that Colin's gone? This seems like it might be a fairly simple fix with the right eyes on it.
All, The last comment seems to be from 2008. Is their any update on this? I switched to Safari as that allowed me to drag and drop images from the browser directly into any image application such as Fireworks CS4. This functionality use to exist in Firefox back in version 2 or so, but broke in a later version. Now with Safari 4, the functionality has broke once again. So until Apple fixes the problem in their browser hoping Firefox can fix there's. If someone can try, I would be more than happy to help test out solutions. Thanks!
This seems to WFM in Camino 2.0b4 and a recent mozilla-central fx (with Stickies and TextEdit as drag destinations, and the image+link combination Camino banner at the top of http://caminobrowser.org/ as the source). Poking with Pasteboard Inspector, it looks like we put the image before the other flavors, so unless this is somehow working in 1.9.0 and 1.9.3 but broken in 1.9.1 and 1.9.2, I think this bug is WFM.
