Failing to extract text/html part of message with show

2022-05-17 16:11:04
I'm trying to extract part of a multipart message sent to me
by Firefox Mobile in order to save my mobile tabs.  I would
like to extract the text/html part as that is the part which has
the tab titles as well as the urls.  Note: I've indented quoted
I/O with 4 spaces and used ellipses ... to replace some bits.

When I list my message with
    mhlist -file mobile-tabs.eml -part 1
I get
    mhlist: bogus multipart content in message .../mobile-tabs.eml
     msg part  type/subtype              size description
       0       multipart/alternative      11K
         1     text/html                 6861
but when I try to extract it with
    show -file mobile-tabs.eml -part 1
I get
    show: bogus multipart content in message .../mobile-tabs.eml
    Date:    ...
    From:    ...
    To:      ...
    Subject: Mobile tabs

    show: don't know how to display any of the contents
          (content multipart/alternative in message .../mobile-ta    bs.eml)

Following the mmh documentation I added
    mhshow-suffix-text/html: .html
to my
as suggested by the documentation but it didn't help.  I also tried to
direct it to use cat for such content type, also with no change.

Looking at the message, I see that the part in question begins with
    Content-Type: text/html; charset="UTF-8"
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

    <div dir=3D"auto"><div dir=3D"auto">Virtue Ethics (Stanford Encyclopedia of=
     Philosophy), Phronesis - Wikipedia, Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy - =

which looks reasonable as far as I can tell.  Can anyone suggest
something I can do
to get at this text part, either expanded from its Transfer-Encoding
or not?  (BTW, I
CAN show the text/plain part which uses the same Transfer-Encoding, but alas, it
lacks the content I need.)  Thanks!
