Bug 440376 - Drag and drop from "Contacts" pane to already populated address text field causes problems has been around since 2008.  but this is a different bug IMO

I suggest we either fix the behaviour or disable drag and drop as suggested by Wayne mery on Bug 440376

But then I drag and drop on empty field "To" address is breaking in the middle.
This bug reproduced only if cursor focused on this field.
