View Full Version : Thunderbird bug

07-02-2009, 10:55 PM
It has happened me to save received mail with thunderbird, the email client branded Mozilla, but when I'm saving I don't have a default name and I have to insert manually a new one.

Usually the mail subject is proposed as name of the file but this doesn't happen when in the subject there are not conventional characters.
When this happen I cancel the saving, go back to the mail where i copy the subject and save again pasting the name but all this is very unconfortable!!

For example, if I open one of this mail with a double click in the subject appears a strange space between two words; if i look at the mail from the list instead of the space there is a strange little ball...

I use Vista and Thunderbird

Which do you think is the cause of this problem? A bug?

Others ideas to resolve that save the mail always with the name of the subject even if there are strange characters?

Thank you

First thing would be to uninstall Thunderbird and reinstall it.Very unlikely it is a bug but is to do with settings.Look in "Edit,Preferences,Advanced".
