From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041020

Description of problem:
Running Thunderbird from rawhide, I noticed right clicking on an
attachment recieved, and choosing "Save-All" brings up a Gtk file
dialog, but the "action" button on that dialog spells "Open".
Somewhat confusing. Should probably bring up the Save dialog
like "Save-As" does.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Recieve a mail with several attacments
2. Right click the bottom where all attacments are shown.
3. Choose Save-All
4. Navigate to where you want it saved, and intuitivly press the "Open"
   button to save..

Actual Results:  Wrong "Open" file dialog shown 

Expected Results:  A Save dialog to show.

This seems to not be the case in thunderbird-1.0-2. The file dialog's title says
"Save All Attachments." The directory select button says "Select" instead of
"Open", so it seems correct in that respect.

I'm thinking of opening a new bug around Tunderbird's use of the old file
dialogs instead of the new ones, though I'm still searching to see if one
already exists. I mention this because the "Select" button might be different in
the standardized file dialog that all other programs use.

Definitely fixed in current versions.
