Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Find e-mail with attachment. 2. Try to open it in by double clicking or right clicking and selecting open. Actual Results: No action. Expected Results: Open the attachment. I attempted to track down a regression and narrowed it down to between 2005-06-10 and 2005-06-11. The only check-in that jumps out at me between this time is the one from bug 288273.
I see this regression too.

My checkin is certainly a likely culprit, but this works fine for me on both machines I tried it on - I tried .txt and .html attachments. Do you see any exceptions on the js console?
JS Errors: Considering text/plain alternative Considering text/html alternative JS Component Loader: ERROR (null):0 uncaught exception: Permission denied to get property RegEx p.constructor WARNING: NS_ENSURE_TRUE(NS_SUCCEEDED(rv)) failed, file c:/build/trees/dbg/mozill a/uriloader/exthandler/nsExternalHelperAppService.cpp, line 1727
I receive this exception too on windows by nightly build 20050627: Error: uncaught exception: Permission denied to get property RegExp.constructor
It's an odd one - some attachments work, and some don't. I can't see an obvious pattern to it eg an MP3 here works fine, but a .doc file doesn't. All things displayed inline such as text and jpgs seem to work OK if double clicked on.
I can only open the eml attachment. I cannot open any file like doc, zip, pdf, etc. even those that display with the message like jpg, or text files (tex, Matlab m)
OS: Windows XP SP2; Thunderbird: Version 1.0+ (20050626) i recieve the same jscript condition when i double click any attachment: Error: uncaught exception: Permission denied to get property RegExp.constructor
this was indeed fixed by Bug 298478
