Description

9 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.8.1.15) Gecko/20080623 Firefox/2.0.0.15
Build Identifier: version 2.0.0.14 (20080421)

I receive messages in Japanese. When the messages are received, and Thunderbird is running, a small popup appears in the lower right corner of my screen. In this window, the Japanese in the subject of the message appears correctly but the Japanese text in the body of the message is mangled. Typically it looks like ISO-2022-JP text but missing its escape sequences.

I've searched through the other bugs but I have not seen exactly the same bug anywhere.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Receive a mail in Japanese when Thunderbird is running
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
Bottom of text looks like $BADFADSDQWERQWER or other mojibake.

Expected Results:  
Either see the Japanese or just don't show the body of the email.

Got a sample mail to attach? Probably dupliciate of bug 449756.
Reporter what you think about comment #1? It is a dupe og bug #449756 (and then now is fixed)?
