Webmail under Mozilla: Attachments of mime type image/jpeg do not open


Email attachments of mime type image/jpeg give an error of "Your browser does not support inline display of this image type."

Any way I can see these items?

First: You should be able to download the attachments regardless and view them.
Second: Advise your email provider that their pages are not Mozilla-compatible and urge them to become W3C compliant.

I am able to download the attachments without problem, but that is not a suffient solution. More often than not my interest in the pictures is ephemeral so going through the steps of downloading, then opening the picture in another program, then deleting it, then returning to email is excessive.
