Pasting images from Firefox to Word creates multiples
  

I am using Word 2007 in XP.

Since I reformatted my computer:
When I select multiple images and text from a website (both Firefox 4 & IE 8), and paste it into word (or Excel), everything pastes fine, except that the 1st image is pasted instead of the 2nd or 3rd.
Thus I get:
image 1
image 1 again (instead of image 2)
image 1 again (instead of image 3)

To select multiple images: I highlight them by clicking and holding,
then I run the cursor over a selection of text and images.
Then I hit control "C".
Then I select a word document and hit control "V"

I can paste from one word document to another with no problem, and I can paste from Firefox into a Gmail composition.
Thus it is not a clipboard issue.

It's the weirdest thing and I have scoured the net and am unable to find a solution.
I figure it must be a setting in Office about "how to paste" but I cannot figure it out.

Please help!

Hell according to my knowledge it is broken". Can you please tell me how you where selecting multiple images? Or it happens just on your pc or its happening with some other system. Is it probable you have several Offices add-ins running that possibly will be interfering through the paste? Please give this information if itís possible me to answer then I will share it with you. I am waiting for your replies if itís a word related issue then try to reinstall it. Thank you.

The same thing happens in Excel.
I also run outlook, but that is all.

To select multiple images: I highlight them by clicking and holding,
then I run the cursor over a selection of text and images.
Then I hit control "C".
Then I select a word document and hit control "V"

It does not happen on the other PC.

This is a simple case of not copying the images properly see if you want to copy multiple images at a time then press ctrl and keep on selecting the images with the mouse make sure that you press the ctrl button continuously when the selection is going on and when you have selected the items just a simple ctrl+c in the Firefox and ctrl+v in the word doc will solve the issue for you whats the big fuzz in that.

Hi Citric,
Thanks, but that doesn't work.

Try selecting this text while holding down the control key (in Firefox anyway).
It doesn't let you highlight selected text, it selects the whole table cell.

If I do that to a cell with different images in it, I still get the first image repeated multiple times.

I still need some help with this.

It could be possible that you have some Office add-ins running that could be interfering with the paste? You might want to try Phil Rabichow's systematic approach by searching it on google and reading through the tips given by him. Have you tried pasting 1 sinlge image and then pasting 2nd image and can continue pasting for the latter images?
