URL link when pasting copied image from website

This is mostly a copy of Image copy paste from browser adds link instead of attaching the image, but I still get url links when pasting image from website. The difference is: copying image in Firefox results in correctly pasting the image into a note (and downloading the image to my folder), however copying image from Brave or Vivaldi browsers results in pasting (via Ctrl+V) a link: “![[]](link-to-image)” instead of a picture.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Vivaldi or Brave browser
  2. Find a picture
  3. Open picture in a new tab
  4. Right-click on image
  5. Click “Copy image”
  6. Open Obsidian note
  7. Paste image via shortcut Ctrl+V
  8. See link to a webpage like “![[]](link-to-image)”

Expected result

1-7. Same
8. Get ![[Pasted image blablabla.png]]

Actual result

link to a website like “![[]](link-to-image)” instead of downloading the picture and linking to it like ![[Pasted image blablabla.png]]

Tried Vivaldi. works for me.

Guess I should have noticed that I faced this issue on Linux machine.
