1) open a new compose window 2) type the begining of an address which cause the autocomplete to use ">>" like: jfd >> Jean-Francois Ducarroz <firstname.lastname@example.org> 3) do not press tab or enter, do not click on another text field or in the message body 4) click the Send button ==> the message is send with the address containing the user input!! The address should have benn cleanup.
I'm seeing the same (Win2k, Moz 1.2 final). Testing a message to myself, I wind up with jroberts >> Jason Roberts <email@example.com> in the To: line. I occasionally see this under less strict conditions than the original reporter mentions. It seems that sometimes if I tab out of the address box while the auto-complete is happening, I still get the auto-complet stuff. I haven't quite nailed down exactly when it happens, but it seems to occur when I'm moving quickly. I was noticing this in 1.2b as well.
The original problem still exist despite the recent work I did for bug 182321
