Using trunk build 2002100317 on Windows 2000. Disable plugins in Mail & Newsgroups via preferences. View a HTML message with a link to a flash file or similar (such as http://windward.nodalpoint.net/doc/media/liikenne.swf). Switch message body view to simple HTML. Click on the link and it opens in the mail window.
ere, please give an example source (preferably all different sources you tried).
Created attachment 105812 [details] Message source with pdf attachment This is a message source with attached pdf. Double-click on pdf attachment and it opens inside the message window.
This "works" with original HTML, too.
Then don't click on it. If you double-click an attachment, you explicitly request to open it. That's what happens. Simple HTML mode is not intended prevent that. It should only prevent plugins from loaing automatically, to prevent from any bugs in the plugins being exploited via mail without user invention (apart from clicking on the mail). I'd think that it opens in a new window, but you say the Original HTML mode behaves the same, so this has nothing to do with Simple HTML mode. I got no answer about a testcase from ere either, and what he describes doesn't sound all that wrong, so I'm closing this WONTFIX (close to INVALID).

Ok, re-closing as invalid. When I submitted this, original HTML was opening the flash plugin in a new window, but sanitized wasn't. Now it looks like they both open in the mail window, so this one is invalid but another should be filed. What I described sounded very wrong for me anyway. Plugins should not load the message window even when I click a link or open an attachment. Besides being just bad behavior, it ruins the character encoding. I think there is a bug about this, and the suggested workaround was to disable plugins for MailNews..
