I receive an e-mail which has several HTML attachments whose content- disposition is set to "attachment". The HTML pages in turn contain Java applets. When I open the mail, all attachments are inlined. This is quite annoying since all the applets will start running. RFC 2183 explicitly says (Section 2.2) "Bodyparts can be designated 'attachment`, ...., and that their display should be automatic, but contingent upon some further action of the user. Mozilla seems to violate this specification.
it is possible to set the view: View->Message Body As-> Original HTML/Simple HTML/Plain Text
I can't find the View settings mentioned in comment #1. Using build 20020510. This seems to be a workaround at best. The default settings need to work as well.
This is a dup of the "view as inline" pref bug. The new body options might not display the attachment inline, but if so, that's a bug (per ducarroz, IIRC).
