User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:35.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/35.0 SeaMonkey/2.32
Build ID: 20150324202208

Steps to reproduce:

I received an apparently mangled HTML attachment that refuses to display correctly in the browser window when clicked over *from* the attachment box. Test:
1. send to yourself an e-mail with the file "secure-email.mix-noblob.html" (attached to this bug) as attachment;
2. open the received e-mail;
3. [double] click or right-click -> open the HTML attachment

Note that opening the same file *from* the browser window works as expected -- minus some minor artifacts, as I removed some sensitive data.

Actual results:

A browser window/tag opens showing some random text

Expected results:

A browser window/tag opens showing the HTML attachment

To be honest: I haven't a clue what the problem might be. Seems to be NOT reproducible with unofficial (akalla) English SeaMonkey 2.46  (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:49.0)  Gecko/20100101 Firefox/49.0 Build 20160923004119  (Default Classic Theme)  on German WIN7 64bit:
1. Sent to  myself email with attached "secure-email.mix-noblob.html" 
  (14.06 KB, text/html) 2015-03-31 12:05 CEST, sphakka. (To POP3 Email
2. Opened Attachment by double click into file name in Attachment Pane of
   Email shown in Message pane 
   » page is shown in Browser TAB
3. Double clicked Email in Thread pane so that it opened in a new window → Opened
   Attachment by double click into file name in Attachment Pane
   » page is shown in second Browser TAB
4. Opened "secure-email.mix-noblob.html" here from this page in new Browser TAb.
5. Compare three TABs:
   » contents looks totally identical for me, no problem at all.
Linux related? Fixed? Related to user's particular installation?
