attachments count is wrong


Firefox is counting graphics in the body of emails I receive as attachments. For instance, if someone has a strip of social media symbols under their business info, that shows up counted as an attachment at the top of the message and at the bottom as a jpeg. It's confusing and annoying. Is there a setting I can change to stop it?

Question owner

Hi, madperson. Thanks for replying.

And, good question! My email is with Yahoo; the reason I posted this as a matter for Firefox is that it doesn't happen when I use Safari, which I've had to stop using because it's lost its mind (constant crashes I can't fix). So I'm suddenly back using Firefox and this problem appeared.

I realize my MacBook and Firefox are both old, but I don't remember this problem when I used Firefox originally. I'd love to upgrade, but that's gotta wait till I find a job!

Thanks again, Suzie E
