Using build 1999111011M11 on Mac only, if you add a new card to your Personal Address Book or click on a message that adds a new card to your "Collected Addressses" book, these cards are not seen when doing an Autocomplete in a Compose window in the same session. If you add these cards then close the app, they are seen when doing an autocomplete. 1. Launch Messenger 2. Open the Address book and add a unique card to your Personal Address Book (one will not partially or fully match a card in your current Personal Address book or History book and does not end in @netscape.com, (i.e. Name=xzt and e-mail = firstname.lastname@example.org) hopefully you don't have this card already in your Abook! OK the card and check to see that it is listed in the right pane of the address book when the Personal Address Book is selected. 3. Close the Address book 4. Click New Ms, in the To: field type in xzt then press <enter> Result: the To: line autocompletes with email@example.com Expected: the autocomplete of the unique name in your Personal Address book (xzt <firstname.lastname@example.org> on the To: line Note: if you close the app then repeat 1 & 4 the name will auto complete as expected. Also note: the same happens to the Collected Addresses abook if you have added a unique new name then try to autocomplete before closing app.
Esther, can you add a note in the tracking bug for M11 release notes for this?
JF: any ideas here? I will take this bug for now, but I cannot imagine what would be causing it.
Totally normal, the TEMPORARY autocomplete code cache the whole AB content the first time is invoked. Therefore new AB entries won't be accessible. Paul, we need to figure a patch. I need somehow to know if the content of the AB is different than last time I cache it, then I would be able to reset the cache. We need a cache for speed issue... Maybe you can keep a "content version" number that you increase each time the content change.
Added to M11 release notes 11/12/99
Mass move to M13.
Let's not spend any more time than necessary on the temporary autocomplete code. JF has the bug for the real implementation of autocomplete.
Should we close this bug?
Moving to M14.
Yes, I think we should close this. Marking a dup of the real autocomplete feature bug. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 16354 ***
