In Internet Explorer 11, with the new image upload UI, it's not possible for users to upload images from web links. There is a known focus bug where one has to click in the white space outside the gray box before pasting, but while the workaround did work for me in Edge, it didn't work for me in IE11.

Additionally, the buttons are cut off and there's a spurious type cursor that doesn't appear in Edge:

Malformed image upload UI in IE11

    I honestly didn't know IE was still in use, outside corp envs.

    Internet Explorer 11 is five years and thirteen days old. Nobody should use or support it.

  • I think four questions, including this one, about bugs with Internet Explorer's 10 and/or 11 are three too many. :¬l I'm sure you could incorporate this glitch in one of the other three questions. Nov 1, 2018 at 7:05
  • Here's a surprise, today in the US there are more IE browser users than there are of Firefox techadvisor.co.uk/test-centre/software/… Nov 1, 2018 at 7:20

    IE11 is the latest release of Internet Explorer, updated last a couple of months ago. Many corporate environments still only support IE, as they're also stuck on Windows 7 (and that's even older) so they don't have edge and don't allow browser installations. This seems like a valid, easily reproducible bug report, downvoting it because you don't like the browser even though it is supported both by its vendor and by Stack Exchange is plain stupid.

    IE11 is shipped inside Windows 10, so mainstream support is still there for a long time, but I agree the usage % is low compared to Chrome.
