User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021016 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021016 As a support engineer, I often receive messages with huge text attachments. I am not a Mozilla guru and I have found no way to not quote these attachments when replying. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a one-megabyte text file, trace.txt 2. Send yourself a short message and attach trace.txt to it 3. Receive the message and hit Reply 4. Delete quoted contents of trace.txt and answer the remaining short message Actual Results: With my 600Mhz P3, it takes about 30 seconds of 100% CPU utilization to generate the reply, then I select all the lines of the quoted attachments by hitting Shift-Ctrl-End and it takes another 30 seconds to delete them. Expected Results: I would like Mozilla not to quote any attachments when replying. The behavior could be user-configurable, with choices like "Always quote", "Never quote", "Ask" or "Ask if the attachment is larger than xxx"
Mozilla automatically display inline attachment event their are specified not to be. I think it's ok when displaying the message but when replying, we should repect the content-disposition header of the attachment. That will prevent quoting real attachment.
Confirming bug and agreeing with reporter's suggestion. :-)
