[14:26] <clokep> I don't understand what that screenshot is trying to show. :-\ [14:27] <marcoagpinto> clokep: the names of the recipients: "Marco Pinto x" "Aceman x" [14:27] <marcoagpinto> each name should appear like that in the editor gadget [14:27] <marcoagpinto> then people should be able to delete them by clicking in the "x"
Address Close Button addon will get you the X
[14:28] <clokep> marcoagpinto: So you're just suggesting a small x appear so they can be deleted? [14:28] <marcoagpinto> yes [14:28] <marcoagpinto> :) [14:28] <clokep> Have you seen JosiahOne's plans to totally redo the To/CC/BCC lines of the editor? [14:28] <marcoagpinto> and a box for each [14:29] <marcoagpinto> a box for To, other for Cc and other for Bcc I also wanted to mention a box just like Outlook uses, with multiple recipients inside each.
Suyash, yes. That's very similar to my proposal, except the X will actually be a drop down icon to list options for the address. Regardless, this bug is kind of obsolete because of that bug.
sshagarwal: That is what I meant :p Thanks for the screenshot which is better than my silly text.

Nevermind :) (In reply to Josiah Bruner [:JosiahOne] (needinfo > CC) from comment #5) > Suyash, yes.

So, can you please mention that bug so that the reporter can be convinced and we can mark this bug as a dupe(?) or anything else that shows this is being solved by that? Thanks.

From a bug management perspective, this bug is not a duplicate of bug 440377: 1) This bug is also filed and valid against the current multiline layout; we never know when bug 440377 will actually land and it might very well be possible and faster to land an easy fix for this in the current layout (make an X appear on hovering address lines, or add an X to every address line). 2) Bug 440377 may or may not implement this exact functionality as requested here, and Josiah's tentative comment 5 suggests it might be done in a different way which does not provide the efficiency suggested here. So if bug 440377 actually implements this in a satisfying way, we can still close this, but until then, it's a bug in it's own right. And of course, it's a long known issue already reported...
