Steps to reproduce:

In Mac OSX 10.6 or higher thunderbird 17.0.8 opens attachements and SAVE them at the same time, no matter if you choose 'open' or 'save'. It's not possible to open the attachement only. More openings causes more savings of the attachement. 



Expected results:

If I choose OPEN attachemnet, I just want to open it.
I only want to save an attachement if I choose SAVE.
