Now, If user receive a pdf attachment or a flash attachment, he must double
click the attachment,then the attachment will be opened in browser. I don't
think it is completed solution to showing the attachment such as pdf. I think
the best way is  showing the attachment with plugin at the end of the email in
the email preview pane. We also should add preference settings to enable this
feature. Currently,Mozilla mailnews will convert all rfc822 source to html
source to display every eamil in message preview pane, It is possible to add
more specific html sources to handle attachment disply. The solution is, if the
email include a pdf attachment, Mailnews mime parser will check whether the mime
type of the attachment is supportted by any plugin, if so, Mailnews mime parser
will create plugin html source for the attachments' auto display. I will create
patch for this feature ASAP.
