Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007 When typing recipient names in the To/CC/BCC/etc field, Autocomplete fails find the address if the Display Name in the Address Book is surrounded by quotes. TO DUPLICATE 1. Open the Address book, click New Card 2. In the Display field, type: "Jane User" [INCLUDE THE QUOTES!] 3. In Email field, type: firstname.lastname@example.org 4. Click OK to save, and then close the address book 5. In MainNews, click Compose 6. In the To: field, start typing: Jane Note: Autocomplete does not list "Jane User" 7. In the To: field, start typing: "Jane User" [INCLUDE THE QUOTES!] Note: Autocomplete lists "Jane User" EXPECTED RESULTS: Autocomplete lists "Jane User" as an option, whether or not you type the quotes. ACTUAL RESULTS: Autocomplete does not list "Jane User" as an option, unless you type the quotes. CAUSE: Many e-mail addresses come in this format (including the quotes): "User Name" <email@example.com> They are automatically added to the Address Book, depending on your settings, but are then useless for Autocomplete. Furthermore, I think it will confuse and frustrate many users, who will look at their address book and say: 'He's in there, why doesn't Autocomplete work?'. Note: To prevent confusion: If the e-mail address and Display Name begin with the same letters (e.g. "Jane User" and firstname.lastname@example.org) then the procedure above won't duplicate the error, because Autocomplete will find the e-mail address.
Dupe of bug 168204?
Yup, dupe ... autocomplete belongs in the Composition component, which is why I didn't find it, but I'll take that up over there. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 168204 ***
