You cannot open an attachment by double clicking it or doing right click > open.

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.

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?

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)
