Thunderbird and SeaMonkey should handle better binary files on netnews, and the support of newzbin (.nzb) Descriptor Files, as does Grabit and several projects on sourceforge would be nice and useful IMHO.
For more information about .nzb files (an open format), you may visit http://docs.newzbin.com/Newzbin:NZB_Guide and http://www.slyck.com/ng.php?page=9

Reproducible: Always

I think that since most nzb files are going to reference yEnc encoded documents, adding a dependency upon bug 119964 too.

And to preclude any eventual comment spam supporting this bug (which, since it's been two years, is unlikely I guess), I suggest users interested use the "vote" feature to voice their support instead.
