In the most cases, I can live without these images in mails. But somewhen I would like to see the images because I know who has sent that specific mail (e.g. Apple user ad's). I have to call a) "Edit Menu", b) "Preferences", c) open "Privacy & Security" (with the mouse as there is no shortcut), d) click on "Images", e) uncheck the mentioned checkbox. I would like to see a new entry in the View menu, e.g. between "Message Body as ..." and "Display Attachments inline", named "Images" or "Images ... " with a sub menu offering "[checkable] Load remote images", "[checkable] Show embedded images". This menu entry or these submenu entries should get a simple shortcut, like [Ctrl][I] (I for images). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Adding a 'show images' button and menu item in Mailnews is discussed in bug 188476 comment 15 and later comments, so this bug could be related to bug 188476.
@zug_treno: I viewed bug 188476. As its topic and discussion mainly focusses on the default setting for remote pictures, but not on an additional UI access point for the global "show images", I would rather keep this bug open and independant from bug 188476. Can you agree or even confirm?
(In reply to comment #2) > I would rather keep this bug open and > independant from bug 188476. I think it would be unwise to change the default image loading behaviour in Mailnews without providing an easy way to load those images. So IMHO this bug (and adding a toolbar button) would block bug 188476. > Can you agree or even confirm? Sorry, I don't have 'canconfirm' privileges. In the mean time you could use View>Message Body As>Simple HTML, see bug 108153 comment 21.
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01". This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code. While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug (given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more reproduction information if you have it. If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved. Thank you for your help in this matter. The latest beta releases can be obtained from: Firefox: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/ Thunderbird: http://www.mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/releases/1.5beta1.html Seamonkey: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/seamonkey/
I would apprciate to have this feature request left open and confirmed.
In seamonkey trunk there is a message bar as in Thunderbird where you can simply click to load the remote content for the displayed message. Does this implement your feature request?
(In reply to comment #6) I will take a look at Seemonkey. What about the Mozilla stuff itself? Is it no good idea to keep on using Mozilla instead of all those splitted apps like Firefox, Thunderbird or Seemonkey? - If I should rather wave Mozilla goodbye and switch my e-mail and news databases over to Thunderbird or Seemonkey, I guess this RFE should be closed afterwards.

Mozilla (application suite) 1.7.x is in maintenance only mode and won't get anymore features. The successor is SeaMonkey which is basically the same what Mozilla 1.8 would have been. SeaMonkey 1.0 (as released) doesn't have that feature but future version will have. Thunderbird already has this message bar at least since Thunderbird 1.5 (maybe 1.0 as well).
(In reply to comment #6) > In seamonkey trunk there is a message bar as in Thunderbird where you can > simply click to load the remote content for the displayed message. When will there be a Seamonkey release that has this feature? If it was in the trunk back in March, then how come it's not in Seamonkey 1.0.4, which came out a few weeks ago?
