Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1b4pre) Gecko/20090406 Shredder/3.0b3pre, Shredder nightly running on Vista 64. Drag'n'drop of attachments from the message reader to the desktop or file folders (i.e. outside Shredder) results in zero length files. Right-clicking and choosing "Save As..." works fine. This happens every time with Shredder nightlies, but works fine in Thunderbird 2.0.x. Related bugs I found are bug 377621 (but reported as Linux only), bug 375728 (but that was also reported on 2.0 branch) and bug 384590 (but that's 2.0 branch only).
This already happens in Thunderbird 3a1 from May 2008, with the difference that Windows displays a "moving..." status window with a progress bar, then a message in the windows task bar that Thunderbird was closed because of Data Execution Prevention, although that doesn't close Thunderbird. It still results in a zero length file. The 2007-06-01 trunk nightly displays the same "moving..." status window, but no message regarding to Data Execution Prevention. It results in no file at all. The 2006-06-01 trunk nightly (ugh, is that ugly!) drops a file called "INBOX4175" with zero length.
Probably a duplicate of bug 458159?
Yeah, could be it.
