Krita currently throws a "The file <URL> does not exist." error when dropping images from web browsers onto the welcome screen. This is kinda inconsistent with how drag and drop works on the document canvas, where opening web images by drag and drop are supported and works flawlessly. I would expect the welcome screen also support this.
Operating System: KDE neon 5.23
KDE Plasma Version: 5.23.3
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.88.0
Qt Version: 5.15.3
Graphics Platform: X11
Browser Version: Vivaldi 4.3.2439.71
This is an inconsistency in how we handle drag&drop events, depending on whether they come from the welcome widget or the KisView.
The welcome widget expects a drop event with an image and an URL, but through the document importer accepts only local files (which in this case doesn't exist; I also tested this with Vivaldi 4.0.2312.33). Conversely, the KisView accepts all drops that have an URL in them (by retrieving the remote URL to a temporary file), but ignoring the attached image.
