Emails where, images dragged from Firefox to the attachment area of a thunderbird compose window and then sent, arrive without the 'attached' image even though the image is shown as attached in the attachment box.

-- Note: this is a *regression* from Thunderbird 2.x

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
* Drag an image from Firefox to a Thunderbird compose window attach target.
* File shown as attached
* Send email

Actual Results:  
* Discover image not sent with email

Expected Results:  
* Image sent with email

This is a regression
When I do the described steps; I end up with links to the images.

Mark is this a wanted change that we introduced in TB3 ?

Confirmed on linux (sends the site instead). I don't think it's an intended change.
Ever confirmed: true

This has been replaced by the behavior described in bug 557708 comment #2, at least on Windows. When dragging an image from a web page into the attachment area, current builds show a fake ".bmp" attachment, but then it fails to send.
