Netscape 4.x when displaying a message also displays clickable links to the mail messages or news articles in the References header. Mozilla does not, even on the verbose header setting. This is a valuable feature.
I believe there is an existing bug on this... will look.

Bug 58302 was marked as a duplicate of a bug about linkifying newsgroup names in message headers, which is completely unrelated to this bug. Reopening.

This is a request for links in headers, right? *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 23114 ***
As long as the message IDs refered to are linkified too. The bug you duped this too seems more concerned with finding http: type links.
