when opening an email containing a LINK to an image on some yonder server,
thunderbird reports that "images were blocked" for security reasons.  however,
when you reply to, or forward the email, the image reveals itself.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an email containing links to remote images, observe thunderbird's
blocking message
2. click "reply" or "forward"
3.

Actual Results:  
image is revealed in message response.

Expected Results:  
good question: "mangled" the image URL so it wouldn't display?  deleted the URL
from the created reply/forward message?  probably the latter.

seems that a security feature is being circumvented.  i discovered this when i
was trying to forward an ebay phishing email to spoof@ebay.com.
