User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a8pre) Gecko/2007090905 Minefield/3.0a8pre Build Identifier: version 3.0a1pre (2007090904) Attachments icons should switch to the smaller icons (on left of filenames) when the number of attachments with the big icons would cause the attachments pane to overflow. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. receive e-mail with ~10 attachments Actual Results: Large attachments' icons cause premature overflow of the attachment pane with too few attachments visible at one time. Expected Results: Attachments' icons should auto-switch to the smaller icons (to the left of the filenames) when the large icons and the number of attachments would cause the attachment pane to overflow. This would allow for the larger icons in the vast majority of cases (~1-3 attachments) but would allow the user to see more filenames when there are many attachments. Justification: Seeing as many attachments as possible is more important than having large attachment-icons IMO!
BTW: I don't like the large icons method because it forces the filenames to be needlessly truncated - a bad thing with ever longer filenames. The small icon method could allow the filenames to be as wide as the message-panel and/or half the width if the number of attachments would justify displaying the list of attachments in two columns.

I would prefer bug 382821 comment 4, to be able to choose *no* icons.
Sound like a dupe of bug #395695.
