But it does not ask for the new application and I cannot find a way to add the association. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Double-click on a .doc file in the Attachments box. 2. 3.
In my Debian install, running Gnome, I'm not even getting an error message; double-click, or right-click|Open, yields no response at all, including no message in the Error Console. I see this with 220.127.116.11 and 2a1-0909. The attachment can be saved, and double-clicking it opens it into AbiWord. xref bug 244618
Created attachment 247441 [details] Attachment window with desired option greyed out. Image of open attachment window with desired option greyed out.
I have found similar problems while opening a ASCII file. I have a file attached to an e-mail named "httpd.conf" and when I click to open, my only option is to save the attachment. I'd like to be able to tell it to open a text editor, but the option to do that is greyed out.
(In reply to comment #3) > I'd like to be able to tell it to open a > text editor, but the option to do that is greyed out. This is not the same problem. This symptom typical of the case when the attachment has been sent with a MIME type of application/octet-stream. Again: xref bug 244618.
This bug should be closed. I do not reproduce it with TB3 RC1 on Ubuntu karmic
