Description irwin 1999-12-05 19:26:14 UTC
I could use the browse function to find a file, but then that file
name (/tmp/patch in this case) would not be transferred out to the file
field.  When I put the file name in manually (and also filled out every
other field in the attachment form) hitting the submit button resulted in a
new attachment form being presented with empty fields and no other action
(the e-mail was cc'd to me, and there were no attachments attached).

I have a RedHat 5.2 system with Netscape 4.08.

This works fine for me with Netscape 4.7. I will need to try and load up 4.08
and see if this happens.

Comment 2 David Lawrence 1999-12-06 19:08:59 UTC
Ok, i tried to attempt the same procedure with 4.07 and it worked fine. In bothe
cases with 4.07 and 4.7 I was able to browse for the file and also enter it in
manually with no problem. I could not find a copy of 4.08 to install and test.
It may be a problem with particular that version. I have not heard any other
reports of this happening. You may want to try a newer version of netscape and
reopen this bug if the problem still occurs.
