drag and drop email address incorrectly inserted in TO field
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0 Build ID: 20160407164938 Steps to reproduce: Method 1 was brought to my attention by someone asking for help on the support forum. I also performed a variety of tests to confirm method 1 nad also discovered method 2 was also causing same issue. Both of the following methods are producing incorrect results. Method 1: Click on Write to open a new Write message. Click on 'Address Book' select address book left click hold down on contact and drag into the 'TO' field of open Write window. Method 2: Click on 'Write' make sure Contacts sidebar is enabled select address book left click hold down and drag and drop contact into TO field. Actual results: The 'email address' is now incorrectly written, a sort of messed up version of writing it twice, but munged up. I can get various messed up configurations. The 'Attachments' side section also auto opens as if expecting an attachment. Expected results: Method 1 via Address Book I believe (if wrong I stand corrected) you should not be able to drag and drop the actual Contact display line into a TO field, but instead should select the contact and click on Write. However, a user has been trying to do this with strange results which I can duplicate. Method 2 via Write Contacts Sidebar selected contacts should be able to use drag and drop to insert a contacts email address. This has been tested in Thunderbird safe Mode with same results.
I cannot reproduce this on windows 7 using version 45 > The 'email address' is now incorrectly written, a sort of messed up version of writing it twice, but munged up. > I can get various messed up configurations. please attach a screen shot to the bug report

Supplied image showing Write window. Used drag and drop method from Contacts Sidebar into a TO field. Doing this the first time will auto open the Attachments pane. If you open the 'Address Book', select address book to see list of contacts. Then drag and drop a contact from the list into the opened Write window, the same results can be reproduced. Using these methods it is reproduceable 100%.
Sorry, forward duplicating this to bug 1267804. There we have the regression range, etc.
