Drag-and-drop images from firefox

I'm using Firefox 2.0 (final), but the RIDICULOUS bug that happens when
you drag and drop imagens from firefox 1.x is still present!! I think
this *VERY* annoying, because I use this function all the time. Also,
when it works, it store the image first on a temporary folder instead
of copying it directly to the location you dropped it. This is also
VERY anoying because I usually deal with VERY large images.

Please, I'm begging you fix this ASAP!

Cor! I never knew about this function!
I've always right-clicked and done a "save as".

Sergio - you never actually say what the "bug" you are seeing is!
Seems to work for me in 1.5.

He Better not be labeling me one either.
Both Dan, and JP McWilliams, and others can attest to my not being a 
Troll! I may have opinions that others don't agree with. But I do not 
post silly questions or answers just to tie up Band with like  certain 
fellow that shall remain nameless has recently. I usually post to 
certain questions that appeal to me and the way I use FF/TB/SeaMonkey. I 
don't post to everything, either.

Sorry if I was rude. Actually, I don't know who you are talking about
..=2E. the internet is full of 8yo kids that don't have anything better to
do...Anyway can someone confirm that this bug is still present? Just go
to flickr or any other site and drag some images, specially large
images (+2Mbytes).

Its very annoying that I cannot trust this feature, I need to waste
time checking if the resulting file is not zero-sized!

As Jay noted earlier in the thread, drag and drop of images is working 
just fine.

You seem to be talking about some very huge files here. Could you be 
trying to move them before they have loaded fully?

Thanks Ed, I tested on that image.  It took a very long time to load 
fully.  When I tried to drag and drop before the image was laded fully, 
I got the same result as Sergio, an empty, 0 KB file.

When I finally waited out the load, drag and drop worked perfectly.

HTH.  It loads for me in about 20 seconds.  I'm on a 6 Meg cable link=20
with Comcast.  Interestingly, loading the page locally from my hard=20
drive takes about 8 seconds to display in SeaMonkey.

Now at home, it loaded fully in about 11 seconds, though it looked fine 
after eight.  I was at my mother-in-law's earlier, with a slowish DSL 
connection, and on the outer range of her wireless network.

Interesting.  I have the DownThemAll extension installed and the 
download was done almost before I clicked on the save.   No problem 
dragging to and fro desktop.

If the d'n'd works perfectly on the first try, it will work fine for
any futher d'n'd operation (unless you reload the page/image?). I
couldn't make the bug happen here with that large image 5Mb, there is
some sort of special condition for that to happen, just god knows what
that is...

Sometimes I also get a message box saying that the image could not be
copied because it is in use by another application (firefox isn't still
using it). That happens because, as I said before, firefox save the
image to a temporary folder (c:\Documents and Settings\username\local
configuration\temp) and them it copies the image to the folder that you
dropped it. I'm still trying to find a good reason for that, does not
make any sense to me to first save it to a temporary folder!

Note that this happen more with large images, but it also happen less
often with small images (~100Kb).

Today I noticed something...it's not only the image size but how fast
you drag'n'drop the file. If you drag and take ~1sec to drop the file,
the operation is always successful.

It happens to me too.
  Plus it increments the name everytime I drag and drop it.
And if I drag really fast, as you said, I get a file of 0 byte.
Strange indeed.
