There are two clients here: My mail client (Claws Mail) and my browser
(Firefox). Claws Mail knows that I want to open a link in Firefox, so
when I left-click on a link in an e-mail Claws opens a new tab in
Firefox and displays the page. That's where things go awry here - the
page in Firefox is blank.

If I right click on the link in the e-mail I get two choices: "Open in
Browser" and "Copy Link." There is no option in Claws Mail to save the
file directly from Claws Mail. 

Do other mail clients have an option to save files directly from the
mail client?
