I was trying to add an image using Google Chrome, but when I click on "Add picture" no picture is added. Actually, no Markdown markup is added to the post.

I also tried on this very site, and it doesn't work.

If that makes any difference, I am using Google Chrome "25.0.1364.97 m" running on Windows 8, and the image I am trying to add is http://www.garden-seat.co.uk/townandcountrygardener/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/slug.jpg.

Same problem. I can neither upload from my computer, nor link from the web! – FakeRainBrigand Mar 4 '13 at 13:04
Same here, FireFox also won´t work – Jehof Mar 4 '13 at 13:06
It's a javascript problem. When you open the popup, a single clic on it will close the gray background. When the image is uploaded, a javascript method try to remove this background which doesn't exist anymore. It then generates an error and avoid the uploaded image to be put inside the textearea. Bad commit I guess :) – j0k Mar 4 '13 at 13:17

Yes; well spotted. This relates to some over-zealous code that was trying to make it easier to close popups by clicking outside. Fixed and deploying real soon. It was not specific to any particular browser.
