We have freshly installed Confluence 4.1.3 in our company and when I try to "copy / paste" an image from a picture editor or from a screenshot tool I only do see a red rectangle showing "broken image" with FF 10. If I use IE8 I do not even see anything when using right mouse "Paste" or CTRL-V.
As Confluence is advertised with "it just works" I assume that some settings are missing?
Anyone an idea?
It looks like this feature is not working with the latest Firefox update (FF 10). I've just created a bug report for you here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-24567
You can vote for the issue and/or watch the issue to be notified of its progress.
Just out of curiosity, are there any plans to reduce those compatibility issues? I mean Firefox is throwing out a major release every few weeks and every time it seems to have a major impact on some core functionalities in Confluence. I will be updating a customer's Confluence instance today, happy that drag&drop of attachments (with FF 7, 8 and 9) is working again since 4.1.3 https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-23360 and now I have to tell those people (again) not to upgrade their Firefox. Since not every company has a centralized software distribution it's almost impossible to avoid that people randomly update their browsers... Could Atlassian give out some advice on a regular basis on which should be the current "browser of choice"? Thanks anyway.
P.S. If I was searching for this bug in JIRA I would probably look in the "Browser Support" Component.
(The bug triager has now added the browser support component :-) )
We're still looking at ways we can improve our current problems with Firefox version incompatibilities. The decision by Mozilla to release new versions so frequently has really been a curve-ball for us (and I imagine for others as well). At this stage, I think the best thing to do would be to add a watch to our Supported Platforms document - http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Supported+Platforms which should be kept reasonably well up-to-date.
2.5 million people visit the community every month, and several thousand questions are asked every month. None of us are going to maintain that body of text, you're asking for millions of hours from volunteers.
I've asked the community team if there is a way to stop comments on posts over a few months old.
Just look at the date on the post. It's not that hard to do.
Lack of this core functionality to copy/paste images creates very bad customer experience of using Confluence as a product on a daily basis.
Uploading images one by one is not acceptable in 2018.
Atlassian, please fix this issue which was reported and is dated back to 2012.
The problem is not fixed: As of May 2019 I have this problem too (see attachment). I have added svg images into a table.The weird thing:
As soon as I switch to edit mode I can see the images (svg graphics) again. I also can see the images in the Confluence app on m iPhone (assuming they are not in cache).
The problem persists even on re-uploading/re-inserting the images.
This error occurs at least in Safari Version 12.1 (14607.1.40.1.4) on Mac
I still having issues loading images to a page. The image is visible until i hit publish then the image links get broken. The third time i tried uploading the images it worked. Tried both to drag and drop and browse computer.
Version 78.0.3904.70 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Hellooo - I was having this "Broken Image" issue with a .JPEG file that I had saved.
I had a funny character in the file name (In my case it was "&"), once I removed this the image loaded with no issue.
Might be worth double checking if your image has any strange issues.
Thanks everyone for answering last week’s question. The winner of the random drawing from those who commented is: @LarryBrock I’ll contact you separately with your prize details. This wee...
