The error that appears suggests the %hh string is being converted to HTML equivalent text (i.e.: %2b = +). Some strings seem to be handled OK. For example, test%20k.lkl worked fine, but space%20test.txt did not. All my test files were 0 bytes in length, changing only the file name. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a file on your computer: c:\plus%2btest.txt 2. Attach this file to an e-mail message. The "Attachments" pane shows plus%2btest.txt 3. Click send. An error appears: Sending of message failed. Unable to open the temporary file c:\plus+test.txt. Check your 'Temporary Directory' setting. Actual Results: An error appears: Sending of message failed. Unable to open the temporary file c:\plus+test.txt. Check your 'Temporary Directory' setting. Expected Results: Thunderbird should properly attach and send the file as plus%2btest.txt Reproducibility "every time" because once you find one of these names, it happens every time with that name.
Dup of Bug 379053? > Some strings seem to be handled OK. For example, test%20k.lkl worked fine, > but space%20test.txt did not. File extension has relation to problem? (Mime-type for ".lkl" is not usually defined or is unknow, then application/octet-stream is perhaps used.) Or difference between "test"(even char number before ".") and "k"(odd char number before ".")?
