Details

STR:
Open PDF attachment from (local) message. Opens in new tab.
Move or delete the message.

Expected:
Tab showing PDF should close.

Why shouldn't it stay open?

Closing the tab is the standard tab behavior. If you close the session and open it again, you get an empty tab where the PDF was. If you can make it work otherwise, fine.

(In reply to José M. Muñoz from comment #2)

Closing the tab is the standard tab behavior.

What are you comparing the standard behaviour to? I might want to open the attachment for reading later, but then archive the message.

Obviously there is the session restore issue, but the basic idea of leaving the tab open seems reasonable to me.

What are you comparing the standard behaviour to?

Well, I compare tab behavior to tab behavior. When a message is moved or deleted, its internal URL changes and hence its tab is closed. Why would that be different for a message part which essentially uses the same URL, just with an added part query?
