When I copy a list of emails (each one in one line), in Netscape 4.8, it does beautifully, it parses through all the emails, put them line after line, and does a extremely good job about creating the email list. But with Mozilla 1.3 final (and earlier ones), only the first line gets added. It is quite frustrating, sorry.... Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open Mozilla. 2. Under Windows Menu pick Address Book 3. Under Address Book Click New List 4. Add a name to the new list 5. Go to a notepad based list of addresses, copy all of them by cntrl-a cntrl-c 6. Bring the curser to the first address in the New List. 7. do Control-v to copy Actual Results: Result on Mozilla: just the first email is copied. Result on Netscape 4.8: It copies over all the emails one after another and put them nicely in each line. Expected Results: It should have done like what NS4.8 did, It should copy over all the emails one after another and put them nicely in each line. Thank you for listening. You guys are doing a great job! Proud of you! Please fix this quirk on Mozilla. Thanks again.
A workaround is to use TOOLS/IMPORT to import the text file into a new address book. You can then create a new list and select all the entries in the book and drag them to the list, or just leave them as a separate address book. It would be nice to be able to paste in an entire list, but I think we have to change this to an enhancement.
Severity: normal → enhancement
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
The work-around does not work. 1.You cannot drag addresses from the main AB window, only the advanced dialog. 2 When you drag a bunch, they all end up on the same line, and you end up with only the first when you close abd re-open. 3.Dragging from the advanced dialog to a created list has random results 4.You cannot drag to a list that is selected This really needs to be fixed
