Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 696994
Mylyn attachments don't open in browser
Last modified: 2012-04-12 12:41:13 EDT
In a Mylyn task rich editor one can click on attachments and they are supposed to open in the browser (if you choose that; I believe it's the default, too). Using these packages:
if I open an attachment such as an image (ex. the image attachments on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=684894) a browser view opens but then a file chooser dialogue is presented with no indication as to why. I guessed that it was asking me where to save the file so I entered test.png and sure enough it saved the file correctly. I seem to remember Mylyn doing something more intelligent with attachments than just offering to save them without any indication of that's what it was trying to do. Could this have something to do with our WebKit usage?
To clarify this works for text attachments so it might be somehow related to content handlers registration.

I think you're right and I think this is an upstream bug. I don't have time to do further investigation at this time so closing.
