Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

Am running Firefox running on Ubuntu 7.04.

Have cleared the setting for  Edit > Preferences > Load Images
Automatically (it's off--not selected).

Logged in to Hotmail account.  Opened email message from MSN Communities, apparently HTML format email.
In that message, clicked a link to an MSN Communities forum message.
Firefox dialog appears:
The page at http://by128w.bay.128.mail.live.com says: Attachments, pictures, and links in the message have been blocked for your safety. Would you like to unblock the content of the message? (Choices are Cancel and OK.)

First problem: Question being posed is a Yes/No question, so choices of
Cancel and OK are not appropriate. This violates various industry-
standard UI guidelines (See GNOME, APPLE, IBM, MICROSOFT UI Guidelines.)

Not having the No option, I clicked Cancel.

Please display an appropriate dialog box and message with the options of
Yes and No, whereby the selection of either one displays the linked
page. YES means to display the linked page and display the otherwise
blocked content. NO means to display the message but do NOT display the
blocked image, attachment, or whatever.

Second problem: The dialog closed and returned me to the originating
email message.

Expected: The dialog would close and then display the linked page in the
e-mail message, **while keeping the suspect images and whatnot
