Details

When dragging an image from gecko to another application, the data should be
advertised in image/png, image/gif, image/jpeg etc format, not just in
application/x-moz-nativeimage format.

Well, if I drag an image into the application Paint or Irfanview, i get the
message that "An error has occurred accessing
C:\DOCUME~1\me\LOCALS~1\Temp\picture.jpg"

or "C:\DOCUME~1\me\LOCALS~1\Temp\picture.jpg" has not been found,

or "C:\DOCUME~1\me\LOCALS~1\Temp\picture.jpg: can't read file header. Unknown
file format".

But I have no problem dragging it into a folder.
