Individually previewing attachments when there are numerous ones gets clunk - it would be wonderful if multiple attachments could be clicked through like a slideshow or scrolled through without opening and closing multiple windows.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
For OSX users, this could be done using QuickLook to have a preview of the attachments.
The Postbox "overlayer" nicely implements it.
