I can see the image in the message box as screenshot shows. If I dismiss the error message & click the image I get a second dialog box Dismissing that removes the image but leaves a placeholder. If I submit the reply I get the 'message too long' warning. Dismiss warning & clicking image gets dialog box below:
Hit 'Insert' as per dialogue box & the image is replaced by a placeholder. Submitting via Post Reply takes me back to 'too long' warning'
In my post above using FF/Linux I dragged an image to the text box & the image appeared in the textbox without further action from me.
On a machine running windows 7 I get different behaviour. I drag the image to the text box & it doesn't appear in the post. It appears in the image upload area as a thumbnail with options for thumbnail of full image.
Ok - I'll go for full & see what happens:
Cool - pic appear in post. Let me submit the reply
Ok -so this feature doesn't work via Firefox 30 on Linux Mint. Any ideas why? It'll not affect me as a user as I find the regular method quicker than resizing windows so I can have browser & image location on view at same time but I have my users to consider & I'm only testing this out as we had a request for it.
