If a contact list is the first of multiple contacts in TO, BCC, etc in a draft or template, then compose window has only the "list" when opening the draft or template.

For example, a saved template with
To: <pizza crew>, <me>
opens in compose with just
To: <pizza crew>

I created a bug 1674652
It contains a bit more info with some testing.

Current workaround would be to put the mailing list last.

To clarify, my testing was on 83 beta and the items in bug 1674652 are correct - but not limited to Bcc and templates.

Changes in this area affect Thunderbird across the application, and can easily have unexpected outcomes, so should definitely bake on beta (maybe a full beta) before ESR.

We don't plan another beta for uplifts - so this will appear in beta 84.

To avoid confusion I'm minusing for esr78, but please request again in a couple weeks after beta bake is completed
