When open a Personal AB in today's build all non-ascii chars in the AB cards that i entered a while ago are garbled. That what i see in the .MAB file :"..<(80=mich$E9line)(81=tibauld)(82=mich$E9line tibauld)"
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.
marina, please verify the resolution. Thanks!
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.
after discarding the old address book and creating the new one, the problem has gone, marking verified /fixed.
