I can also reproduce this with TB 2.0b2(version 2 beta 2 (20070123)) and nightly(version 3 alpha 1 (20070401)) on Solaris Nevada 56. => Confirm this.
Oops, I should have done the test with proxy setting properly. This seems to be related.
Works for me when I set the proxy properly. lijuan, I assume that the proxy wasn't set properly when the mail was sent. Could you set the http proxy in Preferences->Advanced->Network & Disk Space->Connection and try again?
After discussing with lijuan, mark the bug as WFM.
Reopen this bug as an Enhancement bug. Also change the platform to all platform. It happened on Linux, Solaris, and Windows. The problem is when send a message attached with webpage without set up the proxy, there is no reminder to user and will keep attaching web pages. The request for enhancement is add a timeout for this action and give user a reminder. Test cases for this enhancement bug: Pre-condition: Make sure you need set up proxy server for HTTP in Thunderbird Steps: 1. In Thunderbird, Preferences->Advanced->Network & Disk Space->Connection, make sure you DO NOT set the HTTP proxy; 2. Open a mail compose window 3. Select 'Web Page' in popdown menu of 'Attach' 4. Pop out a 'Please specify a location to attach', input a web page like 'http://www.google.com' 5.Click 'Send' Actual Results: After#5: Continuously 'Attaching http://www.google.com'. The status is always 'Attaching http://www.google.com'. Expected Results: Should give user a reminder that the sending failed and timeout, suggest user to check the network setting.
