used by the company web site technicians.
E-mail attachments cannot be immediately opened from the firefox attachment
dialog window. The open option is greyed out. It is only possible to save the
attachment to a local disk and open the attachment from the local disk.

attachment (eg word processor document)
2. Open the e-mail account from the web site address http://www.postmaster.co.uk
3. The dialog window to save the attachment appears

Actual Results:  
The open option is greyed out. It is only possible to save the attachment to a
local disk and open the attachment from the local disk.

Expected Results:  
The open dialog window should allow users to either open the attachment or save it.

Reporter,

Firebird has evolved to Firefox. I downloaded the latest version from
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/ and was
unable to recreate your problem. Downloading attachments now works as expected.
Please confirm. Thank you.

Marking as WORKSFORME based on comment 1, going to mark this as WFM since
Reporters build is really outdated. 

Please only reopen if you can reproduce this with a nightly build.
