I'm wondering if the following might be a bug or not. I'd like to copy an image from the web into a LibreOffice document, a calc sheet for example. Normally I would right click the image in my browser (FF), select 'copy image' and start a new calc file. There I do a crtl+v and nothing happends. No image appears which i find odd. I'm sure it worked before.
When I right click the sheet and select past, nothing will happen eather. Only when I do a 'past special' and select a bitmap, the image will appear.
Some extra information, I enabled the Graphics and objects option [the Menu Tools → Options → LibreOffice Calc → View → Display → ☑ Graphics and objects [enabled]
I tried this on Windows 7 LibreOffice 220.127.116.11 and Ubuntu 10.01 with LibreOffice 18.104.22.168
Could this be a bug?
Thanks for your responces.

Sorry for not seeing your request for the bug information earlier.
I checked MyBugs but could not find the bug report. I only found an Impress file I still have, Therefore the bug report should have the title "Lost Character Paste GDI Metafile" or similar. Reporting date should be 26-May-2012 or a bit later.
Maybe someone else can identify this bug report again.

This post is a wiki. Anyone with karma >750 is welcome to improve it.
I also experienced a lack of pasting functionalities in LO Impress. A lack refers to functionalities compared to MS PowerPoint. To me this appears as questions of image formats which can be handled by LO. As I am not an expert on image formats, I do hope that an expert on image formats would give explanation on which formats can / cannot be handled by LO.
As I also reported my earlier observation as a bug a few month ago and learned that it should have been a enhancement request, it would be great if the aforementioned expert (or a developer) could also comment on the status of development.
I can confirm the copy & paste situation as mentioned in the firs post. I am using LO 22.214.171.124 on XP SP3)
