I think this is an expected result after chuang fixed 13510.
The older version stored Latin1 as ISO-8859-1 and now stored as UTF-8.
Reassigning to chuang for confirmation.

I think Naoki is right.  Please discard the old address book and start a new
one.  If you still see the problem, then file new bug.  I'll close this one as
fixed.

can not verify in today's build (1999-09-15)because apprunner is crashing upon
creating a New Card.

The crash should be fixed on tomorrow's build.  For now, you can find
abCardOverlay.js in chrome\addressbook\content\default. Line 127, change
cardproperty.AddCardToDatabase(uri);  to
cardproperty.AddCardToDatabase("abdirectory://abook.mab");  It will add the new
card to personal Address Book.
