Testing over here shows very slow clipboard pasting.

in 410K .jpg file, after pasting the image (via Control +V), it takes 24 seconds for *ANYTHING* to happen - at all.
And it takes 46 seconds for the action to complete.

After the image is posted, the 24 seconds of "nothing" happening ... it feems like I should try again because of the lack of feedback. But from experience, I know waiting is what is required. Newer users will not have the patience.

Image uploading -from the clipboard- is still slow.

This image is 969K


and takes 17 seconds to post from the clipboard.
11 of those seconds *NOTHING* happens.

Image posting in Xenforo 1.x appeared to be instantaneous.

uploading it as an attached file (not clipboard):
1.8 seconds to read 100% complete.
5.0 seconds to actually complete.
