User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; iOpus-I-M; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: If I am entering an email address that is not in my address book, but type too slowly (i.e., pause), and then hit enter, it uses a proposed match from my address book instead of the email address I typed in. This is sinister bec. it has often resulted in misdirected email going to people in my address book. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Assuming your address book does not have any users with names like "hello" and you have email address completion turned on from local address books. 2. Create a new address book entry First name: hello Last name: world email: email@example.com 3.Ctrl M to compose a new msg. 4. In the 1st To: box, type "hello". Then pause... firstname.lastname@example.org will flash. 5. Now continue typing QUICKLY "@bar.com<enter>". (If you type slowly, it will work.) Actual Results: The first To: box has the address from the address book email@example.com. Expected Results: It should have the address I typed firstname.lastname@example.org This happens with 1.0.2 on both my desktop (faster CPU) and laptop. I am proposing this as Major bec. in my experience, I've run into about 1-2 misdirected emails as a result....
That's 1-2 misdirected emails per wk.
This sounds like bug 278398. Reporter, if you agree, please mark this bug as a dupe of that one.
The very end of 278398 does sounds like the same thing... CR vs TAB is probably a trivial difference. Marking as dupe. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 278398 ***
