Pressing Shift+Delete on a drop-down contact suggestion should (prompt to) delete the suggested contact
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; da-DK; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; da-DK; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4 I mostly use the collected addresses in the address book for word completion when entering new receivers in to:, cc: or bcc:. Therefore, it would be great if I could delete contacts in the address book directly from the drop down contact suggestion. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start typing e-mail or name for contact in to:,cc: or bcc: 2. A list of suggestions will drop down 3. Press down arrow until you find a deprecated contact 4. Press Delete Actual Results: Nothing Expected Results: The contact should be deleted.
Delete shouldn't delete it - it should be Shift+Delete. Shift+Delete deletes autocomplete suggestions from the location bar in Firefox, but it doesn't delete their associated history entries. It also deletes autocomplete suggestions in web forms; but here the data (the text) is completely removed. I'm not sure whether Shift+Delete should delete contacts. I suppose it would make sense if it deleted contacts that were collected, but just deleted the suggestion for manually-added contacts.
