I don't see any indication of it in googling. The only workaround I
can think of is to add another object and position it over the links.
Interestingly enough, when I drag the link in safari, the image becomes
visible. In firefox, I can select the link/image by clicking on it,
but when I copy and paste it, I don't get the image, but the dot next

I tried switching from visibility: hidden; to display: none; and i
seemed to work fine in this case, but I can imagine scenarios where it
would cause other elements to shift.
I don't have any good fix, but maybe adding data points will trigger
someone else's brain cells.
