I manage a lot of files for my clients. When I get them in email and there is a link, I'm very glad because they download from Firebox and then I can use the Download Button to view All Downloads and quickly access all the files I saved regardless of where I saved them. I want this feature added to Thunderbird email.
When I download and save attachments directly from Thunderbird email, I either have to open them to save them (which puts a copy in temp or downloads also) or save them and then go find them to open the part I need to view. I have an extensive file system and it takes way more time in Thunderbird than when I'm able to use the feature in Firefox.
Please add the download button to Thunderbird. It's my favorite email client.
