Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win95; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win95; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212

With a Word file attached to an incoming email message, I can not open the Word
file directly.  Word opens, but then I get an error message:
"Instructions at "0x30941c7c" referenced at "0x000F000." The memory could not be
read.  Then there are two buttons: OK to terminate, and Cancel to debug.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.click on attachment
2 [review].Word opens
3.

Actual Results:  
I get the error message, and sometimes a message that says I should download the
file to my hardrive first.

Expected Results:  
It should have fired up Word and open the file directly, without having to
detach it to my hard drive.

This didn't happen with 1.2.1, but appeared to start today when I installed 1.3
Is Mozilla crashing or word ?

Verified.  Though I don't have Microsoft Word, I have no problems opening
attachments via OpenOffice, which registers itself as the .doc file-type owner.
