When updating an address record in the Mozilla address book, it removes the view
preference for that record in the Palm.  

On my Sony Clie T665C (Palm OS 4.1) the default "Show in list" for all addresses
is "" (read: blank).  A user often will set this to "home", or "work", or "email".

When the user updates the record in the mozilla address book, and sync's... this
setting is lost.

This is not exhibited when using the Palm Desktop software.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Create at least one address, and keep in sync b/w Palm and Mozilla
2.  On palm, open address, select "Details..." button, and select an option for
"Show in list".
3.  Change something in mozilla address book.
4.  Sync

Actual Results:  
Show in list settings are lost

Expected Results:  
Show in list settings should stay.

dataloss should be noted.  Mozilla 1.6 as well.
