Comment 2 Milan Crha 2014-02-07 08:53:03 UTC
Thanks for a bug report and a test message. I can reproduce it too with it, and it seems to me that the issue is the image, which covers whole message body. Even it is added to the HTML before actual text, WebKit renders it above the text, which effectively hides what is written inside. You can right-click on the image and choose "Display plain text version" (first left-click on the message, then right-click), which will show the text without the image and any special formatting. An alternative is to go to Edit->Preferences->Mail Preferences->HTML Messages->Plain Text mode sections, select any other option than "Show HTML if present", which will show the plain text part rather than the HTML (but it applies to all messages). With checked "Show suppressed HTML parts as attachments" you'll still be able to see the formatted part.

Anyway, this seems to me as a bug in webkitgtk3, thus I move this there.

So I made a HTML version on that message and neither Firefox or Chrome can render it properly. So it looks like Microsoft's fault (they should probably use CSS z-indexes).

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 10:50:18 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2015-06-29 15:03:27 UTC
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
