It's possible for the domain you type for a receipient to be overwritten with the default domain (i.e. user.com, if you are email@example.com). Steps to reproduce: 1. Open a message compose window 2. Type just the user part of an email address that's not in your address book and is not at the same domain as your email address. 3. Wait for thunderbird to autocomplete the domain. 4. Type "@someotherdomain.com", overwritten the domain that was autocompleted 5. Hit tab Result: The domain in the recipient field has reverted back to the default domain!
requesting blocking1.0, this seems pretty bad, could result in sending mail to the wrong person without even realizing it
i don't understand your description brian. That sounds like the correct behavior. We always append the default domain if you don't provide one. Can you post a screen shot maybe?
I think you're missing step #4. Thunderbird has provided the autocompletion for the domain, but I typed over it with a different domain. Then when I hit tab, it reverts to what it had autocompleted instead of what I typed. Note, to reproduce this it seems to be necessary to hit tab immediately after you finish typing the domain (my guess is, before the autocomplete timer would fire). If you wait a second or so after typing the domain, then hit tab, it stays. It seems like the autocomplete is firing even though focus is no longer in the recipient field.
as soon as you type an @ sign we kill autocomplete and won't attempt to append a default domain or auto complete that row. I can't reproduce this on windows because of that fact. Once the @ sign is typed the line is dead and it doesn't matter how fast I tab out of the autocomplete row....
You have to have let it autocomplete once while entering the address, _then_ finish it and quickly tab out.
Btw, I'm seeing this on windows nightly 20041021.

this was a regression from my attempt to fix Bug #244522. I just checked in a better fix for 244522 which doesn't cause this regression. Marking this as fixed now.

Bug 278398 - address typed gets replaced with first email address from dropdown list after Tab is pressed. Similar?
