Instead of opening it Word, I get a 'file save as' dialogue. The MIME types are right application/msword. I tried attachment filenames with and without spaces in them. Yet it doesn't work. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Send yourselves a MS Word doc as an attachment 2 [review].When you receive the sent mail, click on the word attachment 3 [review]. Actual Results: opens a 'file save as' dialogue Expected Results: should open the word program to open the doc
More excerpt from the mail window (mail was sent and received using Mozilla 1.3 (same version as the one used to file the original bug) --------------060104070802030901020004 Content-Type: application/msword; name="Sai Allavarpu.doc" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="Sai Allavarpu.doc" -----------------------------
Noted that there is a pref in pref.js getting set (something like helper.applications.neverAsk.saveToFile) that includes application/msword. When I manually remove that line, this problem doesn't happen. Don't know how that preference got set.
