User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20150511103818

Steps to reproduce:

I've build a little jpg-file to be used as signature and had choosen it to be used as signature by sending mails in the configuration of this account. 


Actual results:

It failed. The file was not used as signature But I find out, what went wrong:

In the path to the used jpg-file there was one directory with an umlaut, an ä in this case. So I moved the file in another directory without an umlaut and it was used as signature.


Expected results:

In the path to the used jpg-file there was one directory with an umlaut in its name, an ä in this case. So I moved the file in another directory without an umlaut in its name and it was used as signature.

I can't say yes or no, because I'm actualy using Version 38.8.0 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. In this version it does not work
