kmail changes font size
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:35 EDT
Description of problem:
When browsing my email, the font size used to display email will suddenly
increase. It never goes back to its original size without shutting down kmail.
This bothers me since I don't think an email from an untrusted source should
affect global kmail settings. This could be indicative of a security hole.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just start reading email on fedora-devel list
Fonts get bigger over time
fonts stay the same.
There's a reason KMail doesn't display HTML by default (unless you click
something explicitly). :-) But the font size set by one mail still shouldn't
affect the next one, you're definitely right there. I think upstream is the
best place to report this though.
I don't have html email enabled because that is a security risk. I do not click
on html email, I instead delete it.
So the font size changes on text-only mail?! Ouch, that sounds fairly bad
