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.
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.
Experiencing same issue in Firefox, July 2013.
Oddly enough, this feature was working on Friday, now it's Tuesday and Firefox must have updated over the weekend... still working perfectly in Chrome and totally non-functional in IE8.
