Receive a message with an attachemtn 2. Resize mozilla 3-pane, or double click on the message so you can see the desktop or an explorer window at the same time as the message attachment listing. 3. Drag & drop from message to explorer/desktop Actual Results: A shortcut is created instead of a file with the contents of the attachment. And if you click open the shortcut you get two error messages: Unable to open this internet shortcut. The protocol "mailbox" does not have a registered program. <press ok> Unable to open Internet Shortcut "<path>file.pdf.url". Expected Results: Save contents of attachment instead of creating a shortcut.

Ever confirmed: true
It's possible now to hook up stuff in a drag to allow for file saving (see bug 193053). Whehter we need to wrap this in another layout, to make it easier for apps like mail to save attachments, is an open question.
Depends on: 193053

Any plans for this bug now that that the DnD merge has landed?

Isn't this basically bug 83803? (See particularly bug 83803 comment 12 which mentions the creates-a-link-instead issue, and also gives a hint on why this isn't in place yet.)
