(In reply to alta88 from comment #2)

In addition to this, there is a regression on win only (maybe mac too), where a detached/external attachment does not appear like a link, the .text-link color is overridden. I think it's due to .text-link no longer being added to the child node post de-xbl. This is an important visual.

Well, there is an underline shown for a link when hovered. If not hovered, it looks like the others.

No longer depends on: 1571663

This fixes the issue and also removes a unneeded colour for the size text which makes it unreadable with dark theme.

The original code set .text-link on the .attachmentcell-name element. It was done to prevent exactly this kind of css hackery and divergence into platform specific workarounds. Several bugs later (boxobject, de-xbl) this was lost.
+      let name = attachmentitem.boxObject.firstChild
+                               .getElementsByClassName("attachmentcell-name");
+      name[0].classList.add("text-link");
I think for the sanity of anyone maintaining the css (you :)) it would be better to do a querySelector to get .attachmentcell-name element and set .text-link there rather than the attachmentitem ancestor.

The other attachment bugs (bug 1562200 and bug 1563793) have ESR68 approval too.

So the colour is some link colour (blue-ish) but the underline only comes on when hovered. That's intentional?

Yes, the original patch was for CVE level spoofing issues, so the intent was to make external attachments different from internal attachments, and the very common behavior is blue for a link, underline on hover and show the url.
