When i drag an image (In this case an png) all elements in the Panel go gray except for Firefox. This means that i can open and show the png image with Firefox but i also have Chrome in that list. How can i make it so Chrome also appears with color (Not grayed)

Image of problem:

Only Firefox appears highlighted instead of Firefox and Chrome

This is because Chromium does not announce that it can open .png files in its .desktop file but Firefox does. Compare the MimeType lines in /usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop and /usr/share/applications/chromium-browser.desktop.

Please report this bug by running ubuntu-bug chromium-browser
