      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Can't Open Attachments in Thunderbird

Recommended Posts



I am using Thunderbird 1.0.2 and can not open e-mail attachments. When I receive a message with an attachment, the attachment appears in the attachment pane. If I right click on it I get the options to open, save, or save all. If I select open, nothing at all happens. I am able to select save and then save the attachment to some other location on my computer and open it from there. Is there a setting I must choose somewhere to fix this? It is happening with all types of attachments from PDFs to OpenOffice docs. Any Help is appreciated....

I still haven't been able to find any info on fixing this problem anywhere. Am I the only one with this problem? Maybe I should try reinstalling Thunderbird?
