Steps to reproduce:


I found the urgent bug in Thunderbird ver 31. In order to repeat this bug you should do the following steps.
1. Prepeare a list of emails separeted with commas and "newline" delimeters for example:
email1@domain1.com,email2@domain1.com,email3@domain1.com,
email1@domain2.com,email2@domain2.com,
email1@domain3.com,email2@domain3.com, email3@domain3.com,email4@domain3.com,

2. Copy this list to clipboard

3. Open a windows for composing a new mail.

4. Try to paste a list of emails from clipboard to "To:" (or "Reply-to" etc.) field




Actual results:

5. After that you can find that all "email1" (exluding first line) contain comma it the begining:
email1@domain1.com
email2@domain1.com
email3@domain1.com
,email1@domain2.com
email2@domain2.com
,email1@domain3.com
email2@domain3.com
email3@domain3.com
email4@domain3.com

So, Thunderbird thinks that ",email1@domain2.com" and ",email1@domain3.com" are incorrect emails




Expected results:

The correct list should be:
email1@domain1.com
email2@domain1.com
email3@domain1.com
email1@domain2.com
email2@domain2.com
email1@domain3.com
email2@domain3.com
email3@domain3.com
email4@domain3.com


It is very urgent bug for me. Please, fix it!

Try changing the editor.singleLine.pasteNewlines pref
(I don't recall details of which number is what)

Thank you, seems that changing editor.singleLine.pasteNewlines from 4 to 3 helped to solve the problem!
