Doubt if I have ever removed attachments, would not think to test that function. They are planning to issue a fix to 52.9.
Same to me, I never have seen a need to remove an attachment from an email: Either keep or delete the email.

I can see where someone may wish to archive emails, but not whatever large attachments that may have come with them that they have already used or saved elsewhere, so not to use unnecessary space.

Of course, in any case, if they're given the option to do so, they should be able to do it without unexpected loss.

Forwarding an email without the attachment from originator might be a possibility for this fault?

Forwarding could be a reason someone would want to detach it. But the problem reportedly occurs when an attachment is detached from a message in the Inbox or Sent folder, presumably using the attachment dialog at the bottom of the email. So if you open the email for forwarding before detaching the attachment you can delete the attachment from the box in the upper right corner, like other attachments you may add while editing an email, and I wouldn't expect it to affect the original email.

But I have no personal experience with it, and talking about detached attachments somehow confuses me (it doesn't take much).

Thunderbird 52.9.1, rebuilt from the source now in Debian Sid, is now in the main repository. Hopefully this update fixes the attachment data loss bug.

TB 52.9.1 with Testmail, deleted attachm.

Warning, it will be lost forever, OK.

Closed TB, started again, no Problem.

Strange:
In "Vorschaufenster" i still can see 4,3 kb attachm., after opening in status: 1 attachm. deleted: ...pdf

so, it works.

I wonder if we might have a dependency issue on the 32bit version:

Code: Select all

Package: thunderbird:i386
Version: 2:52.9.1-1~mx17+1
Depends: ...
 libfontconfig1 (>= 2.12.6)
 libhunspell-1.6-0

Package: thunderbird
Version: 2:52.9.1-1~mx17+1
Depends: ...
 libfontconfig1 (>= 2.11)
 libhunspell-1.4-0
EDIT: Confirmed: we have an dependency issue: no updates of thunderbird on i386 systems.
I can update thunderbird only if I manually install the above libfontconfig1, libhunspell from MX testrepo.

I just checked and it needs hunspell-1.6 and it builds without anything above stretch so I'll ask Tim to move it to main.

In addition to hunspell I had also manualy intall libfontconfig1 from testrepo for i386 version, I think. ( tested on MX June without any testrepo)

sure does, I'll ask tim to move that one as too. libfontconfig1-2.13's control file has a depends for ucm (>=0.29) [a typo perhaps] but 3.0 is in stable so this should be OK as well.
