Edit As New Message forces customized From
Firefox 45 includes a new "editable from field" feature that can be accessed by choosing "Customize this address…" from the From dropdown menu. But if I start composing a new message by editing an existing one (Cmd+E), the custom from feature is activated by default and there does not appear to be a way to disable it. Steps to reproduce: 1. Select a message in a folder (I am using IMAP). 2. Choose "Edit As New Message" or press Cmd+E. 3. Click in the From field. Actual results: the From is editable as text. Expected results: the From dropdown menu should open. This is particularly annoying because it seems that when Thunderbird uses a custom from it always tries to send via the default SMTP server (even when the from address matches another configured account). I suppose that may deserve its own bug report, but let's start with this one.
I forgot to mention that I am using Thunderbird 45.0 on Mac OS 10.11.4.
indeed. we have bug 1254666 for this.
