From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:0.9.4+) Gecko/20010917 BuildID: 2001091703 the mail reader seems to mistake anything with an at-sign (@) inside quotation marks (") as an email address. for example, i was reading some mail with a small inline XPM image. the following lines were drawn "blue and underlined" and were clickable as mailto: links. ".+@#$%. .%$#@+.", "++@#$%. .%$#@++", "@@@#$%. .%$#@@@", "@@@#$%. .%$#@@@", "++@#$%. .%$#@++", ".+@#$%. .%$#@+."}; obviously it would be hard to catch _all_ strings like this that aren't real email addresses. perhaps if there is more than one @ in the string, it is not tagged as a link? or perhaps if there are no alphanumeric characters? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. view mail with the example strings. Actual Results: see the text highlighted as a clicable mailto: url Expected Results: display as regular text this is likely not really a bug for the "Mail and News" team, but i couldn't find a better category.
Dupe of 79064. I should get the permissions to mark dupes soon.
