Description

16 years ago
2002100504 trunk.

Links (http://www.mozilla.org) are not being "linkified" when reading mail &
news messages. It just appears as plain ASCII text that requires copying and
pasting into the URL location bar to visit.

A search in MailNews for "links" did not turn up any duplicates.

Note the lack of clickability on the Bugzilla link

This is caused by a message that doesn't have the Content-Type header (such as
Bugzilla mail). Mail with the Content-Type header correctly "linkifies" URL's.

Ok. It gets weirder than that. It also fails for messages with the following
Content-Type header:

Content-Type: text/plain;
	charset="iso-8859-1"

Sorry for all the spam. I got it definitively tracked down. If the Content-Type
header does not have format=flowed, URL's are not linkified.
Summary: Links not "linkified" in mail & news messages → Links not "linkified" in mail & news messages unless format=flowed

It happens with any mail in my Mailbox.
Including those without Content-Type an this ones:

"Content-Type: text" , 
"Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="3d9162f32a4a"" ,
"Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary=boundary-BigSender"

E-Mail addresses are also affected by not beeing "linkified".

trunk 2002100508, Win2000
news with:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

quotes are not colored and links not "linkified"
This is a pretty serious functionality regression, particularly for those of us
who use Bugzilla :-)

CCing some people from bug 172210, which may have caused this regression.

ducarroz, is this a dup of #172808?
yesy, this is a dup of 172808. we use a different patch for format=flowed which
explain why it was still working in that case.
