Hmmm... I wonder is that is the case; OpenOffice inserts a link to the graphic; example: mailbox:///home/<username>/.mozilla/seamonkey/<snipped>.default/Mail/pop.sbcglobal.yahoo-1.com/Leonard?number=2910708&part=1.2&type=image/png&filename=Screenshot-Software Sources.png As you can see the link is to the graphic that is in an email I've selected and copied to OOo 3.01RC1. Unfortunately, it only displays a link box rather than the graphic - which I believe can be adjusted by breaking the link, but can recall how at the moment. If I cut & paste the exact same link an put it into the SM url bar, the graphic displays nicely in a SM browser window. So, the link is valid as far as SM is concerned. However, if I paste the same link into Firefox I receive a: Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (mailbox) isn't associated with any program. OK, so I change 'mailbox:' to 'file:' in Firefox - I now get the email(s) in the Firefox browser plus the image png code (but not the image itself): Content-Type: image/png; name="Screenshot-Software Sources.png" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="Screenshot-Software Sources.png" Obviously if you do a right-click on an image in the email and select 'Copy Image' you can paste anywhere. So I wonder if perhaps *SM* is not properly copying _its_ contents to the clipboard rather than the 'paste-to' application misinterpreting the content of the paste. _______________________________________________ support-seamonkey mailing list email@example.com https://lists.mozilla.org/listinfo/support-seamonkey
