From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19 i586; Nav) BuildID: 2001060115 When I am composing a new message or replying to an existing one, I click the browse button to find the file I want to attach, double-click the file, then click Attach. The file shows up with the complete path as opposed to simply the name of the file itself. For instance, it is attached and sent as /home/mattyt/foobar.jpg instead of simply foobar.jpg. The recipient is unable to open the file they receive. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Log in to my IMP webmail system 2. Compose new message 3. Click the attach button 4. Double-click the file I want to attach 5. Click Attach 6. Click Send 7. The file cannot be opened by the recipient Actual Results: The file is not usable by the recipient Expected Results: Should have sent the file as 'foobar.jpg' instead of '/home/mattyt/foobar.jpg'

um. i dunno is there a spec for http-upload?

it's a code bug. when most browsers send a file as part of an upload, they send the filename, when we send the full path. it should be really easy to fix. I'd say bug 85577's location is probably easier to use

Ever confirmed: true
Summary: attachments when using IMP webmail show up with complete path, not just filename → http uploads send file as complete path, it should be just filename

Is this a Linux only problem? Both Nav 4.75 and IE 5.5 on Win32 send the full file path, so we are compatible there. Would it be possible for you to attach a URL and temporary account info where I can test the "IMP" webmail system? Thanks.
