When trying to save those images by right-clicking the image and selecting "Save Image As..." from the popup menu, the download starts and processes through to 100%, but never completes. Only way to close the download window is to press Cancel. The file will not be saved. The bug appears from the embedded mail window below the message list, as well as from the standalone window. The message is downloaded from an IMAP server, the message is not cached to the local drive. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a message with one or more image attachments 2. Try to save any of the images by right-clicking it and selecting "Save Image As..." Actual Results: The download window opens and the download process begins, goes through to 100% but never completes. Expected Results: Complete the download and save the file.
This bug has been reported by a debian user too: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=325140 ... is this a dupe?
Using Thunderbird 1.0.6 (20050716), I also had trouble saving an image - I get the stuck on 100% thing too. When I looked at the message source, I noticed "Microsoft Exchange" and "multipart/alternative" was mentioned. The message was composed HTML and the image I was trying to save was part of the body, rather than a separate attachment. The part relating to the image looked like this: ------_=_NextPart_002_01C5D061.AA38A5F2 Content-Type: image/gif; name="image001.gif" Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64 Content-ID: <image001.gif@01C5D0A4.B77DDC20> Content-Description: image001.gif Content-Location: image001.gif I will attach an image showing the download manager stuck at 100%.
Re comment#2 - I forgot to say I run Thunderbird on Windows XP and collect mail using IMAP (Courier IMAP).
Have you tried 1.5beta2? An IMAP protocol log of a session where the save fails to complete might be useful as well. http://www.mozilla.org/quality/mailnews/mail-troubleshoot.html#imap
I loaded Firefox 1.5, and this Thunderbird issue seems to be fixed now. Now after a download the "Launch File" and "Show Download Location: buttons are enabled, and the file does end up on disk.
I have this problem in 1.5rc1 as well. It is fixed in 1.5rc2. Even in rc1 the file does save if you just close the window using the x.
Ville Mattila, comment 7 states that this problem was fixed in 1.5RC2 (and so should also be fixed in the release of 1.5). Are you still experiencing this problem?
