Build ID: 20150321194901

Steps to reproduce:

Simplified input of contacts at a source

I want to Populate a contact for an existing source new, without retype everything.

Actual results:

Whenever I want eingen a contact for an existing source I have to fill out everything from scratch.

Expected results:

I miss in the address book function to duplicate a record - to then change it to.
This would be a great advantage if you have different contact partner at a source. Eg: Various contact in a company. Then you would need to clone only once and would only change his contact information. The rest would remain the same.

REPRODUCIBLE with EN-US Seamonkey 2.33.1 (German Language pack)  Gecko/20100101 Build 20150321194901 (Default Theme) on German WIN7 64bit

There is a way to create new contacts as a copy of an existing one, but it's not user friendly: You can drag and drop a contact to a different address book, modify it and drag and drop it back.

I did not find any DUP <>
