Paste Without Formatting Implemented in Mozilla Thunderbird

It is now possible to copy formatted text (e.g. from a web page) and then paste it into an e-mail, and the text will be inserted using the formatting (or lack thereof) of the e-mail (target) and not that of the source. This feature is (almost) as cool for Thunderbird, as tabbed browsing is for Firebird. 'Paste Without Formatting' can be accessed via the context menu or the 'Edit' menu. The original bug was bug 64647."

I found a wonderfully graceless solution that gets around my having to save the images to my HD.

1)Drag the images from Firebird into the body of a TBird Compose window. 2)Mail the images to yourself (or a null address) 3)Open up the sent message and drag the images to the attachment field of a new message.

Voila!
