If you have a file dialog open (e.g. for saving a web page, or downloading a
file) from either the browser or the mail window, then autocomplete does not
work in the compose window.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Bring up any web page, e.g.
2. Press Ctrl-S to bring up the save dialog.
3. Don't save the page; leave the dialog up and go to the mail window
4. Click on compose.
5. Type in the first part of an email address that ought to autocomplete.

Actual Results:  
The email address does not autocomplete in these circumstances.

Expected Results:  
Autocompletion should work regardless of whether there is a file dialog open.

Hmm ... Looks for me like a dupe of bug 74331. Could this be?

TB2. Still happens in TB (not 3)
-go to another msg with attach, and say save (/browse ..)
-back to composing
**no autocomplete apparently 
close the browse /save attach ..
**autocomplete does in fact completed a contact, probably first proposed

It seams to just *not show* proposals, but actually does it silently ..

TB3. Same procedure works well in 3.0a (wfm 3 here ..)

but this is TB and has no "browser" auto complete issue ..
