GMails With Attachments (in Thunderbird) Will Not Preview

I'm using Mozilla Thunderbird version 24.5.0 on a Windows 7 Home Premium system.

Several weeks ago, I noticed that some e-mail search results cannot be displayed in the X1 preview pane. When this occurs, instead of displaying nothing, the contents of the previously-selected e-mail are shown. Of course, this assumes the previously-selected e-mail was displayable.

I think I've identified the unique circumstances associated with the e-mails that cannot be previewed. All these e-mails were sent to me from a GMail account AND they have attachment(s).

Other than this, X1 and Thunderbird have been fully functional with no signs of corruption, nor any other noticeable problems.

Suspecting my X1 installation/configuration had become corrupted, I de-installed and re-installed X1. The re-installation completed normally, but the problem with some e-mails not displaying persists.

Has this problem been reproduced/confirmed? Is there a fix for this?


Thanks in advance.

This is now an old version of X1. In X1 8.X – version 7 never escaped into the wild – you can handle GMail directly via IMAP. Doing that, attachments display fine there.

Perhaps not the answer you want, but, failing a proper solution, maybe a way ahead.
