User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040616 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040616 When receiving forwarded messages that have a previous message as a .eml attachment, the same attachment appears when the attachment is opened. Mozilla is apparently unaware that the attachment is already opened in another window and makes it appear as if there is an infinite depth of attachments and forwards of the message. Typically seen with messages sent from AOL accounts. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click on message header to open it in browser window 2. Message body may or may not be blank, but shows a .eml attachment 3 [details] [diff] [review]. Click on .eml attachment 4 [details] [diff] [review]. Attachment opens, and shows itself as a .eml attachment 5 [details]. Click on .eml attachment 6 [details]. etc., ad infinitum Actual Results: Attachment opens, and shows itself as a .eml attachment in the new window. Expected Results: Attachment opens and shows no further attachments if it was at the lowest level of forwarding, i.e., the original message. Without examining the message source it is impossible to tell how many levels of forwarded attachments the message actually contains. Netscape 4.x mail client doesn't display this behavior when viewing the same message.
