You should give more details. What OS are you using (Win 7 - Win 10 - OSX - linux) and version of Gimp.

I normally use linux, but I can get an image in Win 10 web browser to copy and Edit -> Paste opens in Gimp

Copy / Paste still not the best way to open an image. Can you not download as a regular jpg / png / tif / ...any supported image format. There will be a Download or Save-As option somewhere.

Then in Gimp it is File -> Open. It is the usual way.
