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.
