Happens for me too. Thunderbird build 2003-05-06, win32.
Thunderbird is currently pre-alpha und bugs should not go to bugzilla at the moment because it's incomplete. Mscott means that you should use the Mozillazine Forums for bug reports at the moment -> invalid

Summary: Problem with "View Image" in Thunderbird → Problem with "View Image"
Confirming bug. This does happen. It should probably open up whatever the default image viewer is for that image type. But, since thunderbird has a gecko engine and can render images inline, then there's no reason a thunderbird window can't render the image, so external calls may not be necessary.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Happens also with signatures containing image URLs
I don't think it happens for just Windows2000 either, so perhaps some others that use it on other OSes could confirm the bug and change the affected OS field.
Build 20030901 which is 0.2 Windows XP I can confirm the same behavior with XP.
Confirming bug in Mozilla Thunderbird 0.4a (20031110) on Windows 2000 Pro.
As far as I know, the "View Image" option is only available by right clicking on an image already visible in the viewing window/pane. What’s the point of “View Image” if you’re viewing the image anyway? Unless there is a situation where a placeholder is displaying instead of an image, I say that the item be removed from the menu.
Yes, but if it's scaled, or clipped, or has transparency etc. it's nice to see the image in its original context. In some cases it is also necessary to view the whole image if the page has frames or other artificial dimension constraints.
Also, "view image" is a necessity if you've activated the option to block remote image loading-- it's the easiest way to know what's in that blank space short of copying the URL into a browser!

fix checked in. Eventually it'd be nice if we could launch a browser or whatever the default image viewer is....
