Copy image got image URI instead of the image, bug?

  • I'm using latest Vivaldi on Mac and experienced this strange phenomenon. Here's how to reproduce the problem:

    1. Open any page with image on it.
    2. Right click an image, choose "Copy Image".
    3. Ctrl+V to any web app that accept image from clipboard, ie Twitter/Facebook

    Instead of paste-ing the image from clipboard, it will paste-ing the URI of the image.

    Paste it and...

    This strange behavior is intermittent. It sometimes works as expected.
