Email attachment handling
My problem environment: I have two different distributions that are Debian based and have the Mate desktop environment. My browser is Firefox, and if I receive an email to either an AOL or Yahoo web mail account and the mail has an attachment containing a .doc file, when I attempt to open it, my only option is to save it. ALL other file types except .doc allow me to either open it or save it. I do not get this behavior in any other Linux system that I try. If there is anyone out there who can duplicate the environment outlined above, I would love to know your experiences and observations as related to my problem. My wish is that when I click on the attachment to have the choice of opening or saving it, not just the save option.
Thank you, rmockler
