can't add images from print screen on Imgur
i tried it on chrome and it worked
but Firefox NO !!
before it was working but now doesn't work
i tried version 49 and the latest version 51
the problem is in Firefox
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm using windows 10

but it works in google chrome

even my friend tried on his own laptop
and the result like mine

someone said to me here https://community.imgur.com/t/bug-cant- ... efox/38714
Firefox doesn't allow for ctrl+v functionality without having an active field of editable text. (Security reasons?) Chrome and chromium-based browsers have this function. It's not a matter of lack of Imgur support, it's lack of a browser feature. Contact Mozilla.


I didn't understand him :(

Part of the problem may be the link you posted.
Try https://imgur.com/ instead of the http which is being phased out.
Were you performing this with an extension? . . . did you try it in Safe Mode?

As to Firefox doesn't allow for Ctrl+v functionality without having an active field of editable text. from you post?
Tried CTL+V and it reproduces the last copied text but doesn't seem to do the same with an image.

Tried with safe mode and i disabled all the extensions
same result
Can you upload an image on imgur ?
Click print screen on the keyboard and then CTRL+V see if it works in the homepage

Just tried it and uploaded this Range marks
Logged in with cookies and had no issue but did not do Ctl+V, since it didn't work for another test earlier.

@Captain_Arabia

Click any text or background blank area, and then hit Ctrl+V.

(it depends on the focus)(Ctrl+V is working always but imgur fails to get it in a certain situation)

CTRL-V works fine for me. I click on the green "New Post" on the top, ctrl-v and it pastes.

One thing, go to about:config and make sure clipboard.plainTextOnly is set to false; otherwise, it won't work. Also, make sure that dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled is set to true; otherwise, it doesn't work.
