Updating email address in Mozilla causes palm's view preference "show in list" to be lost on Palm
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 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.
