Bug: Pasted images are not saved in questions/answers

I'm sure this used to work, but not anymore. Same issue as the previously resolved bug Unable to copy/paste pictures in the comment/answer with FireFox 50.0.

I can paste an image into the editor, but it is no longer saved.

Here is my pasted image:

But when I save, it is gone.

Here is my editor box of how the above looked before saving:

    I need to see notifications here, come on

  • I'm reading the comments and answers, and I'm trying to confirm what is being reported.

    As Vadim noted, he has reported several issues related to pasting images. He shared the link. For easy reference, it's

    The issues appear in rows 5 and 6, and my colleague Moshe Naveh gave an update in the comments.

    Please let me know if this is a separate issue and I'm misunderstanding what's being reported here.

    Best regards,


  • Excellent blog, I haven't seen that one. I must confess I'm not spending as much time going through those, mainly because the 'new' (can it still be called that?) platform is still far too tedious to work with compared to the old SCN. Searching has improved, but is still quite painful to use, so I am aware I might be posting issues that have been raised before.

    • Yes, I mean it hasn't been resolved during more than 6 months! I have spend a lot of time saving pictures to the local folder then uploading into the answer editor. In order to provide meaningful answers we need illustrations :)

      And I have to repeat - I don't have issues with picture paste on any other sites!

    • Hi Veselina,

      I apologize for overlooking the fact that it was already reported. Whatever was already reported no need to capture and send to the support team again. Just new bugs. The focus should be forward looking.
