I want to add a new address to the Address Book. When I click on New Card, I get a form to fill out. I type in the new person's first name, then his/her last name. The display box fills automatically with First Name Last Name Example: Jane Smith I prefer a display of Last Name, First Name Example: Smith, Jane Mozilla should make a Preference available, so that, if the user wishes, the Display box is filled automatically with Last Name, First Name. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. In the Windows menu, click on Messages and Mail 2. Open the Address Book. Click on New Card 3. Begin to fill in the form. There is no way to tell Mozilla to enter Last Name, First Name in the Display box. Actual Results: Mozilla fills in the Display box with First Name Last Name. Short of re-typing, there's no way to change the order of the names displayed. Expected Results: In Mail Preferences, there should be an option controlling how new names are displayed in the address box.
I believe there already is a pref - hidden: Try adding this to user.js (save it in same dir as preferences.js) user_pref("mail.addr_book.displayName.lastnamefirst", true); Should be done while mozilla is not running. Any change after restart?
CORR: should have been: "save it in the same dir as prefs.js"
