Using builds 2000-06-23 and tested again with 6/26 builds the Display Name in an 
Address Book card does not auto-populate when typing in the First Name and Last 
Name as it did in 4.5 - 4.7x.  Not specifically stated in spec that it should or 

1. Launch Messenger
2. Launch Address Book
3. Select an Address Book in the left pane
4. Select New Card (either the toolbar button or from the menu list).
5. Enter a name in the First Name field, tab to the Last Name field and enter 
the last name.

Result: the First name and Last name are not shown in the Display Name field.  
Expected: Per 4.5x - 4.7x behavior the Display name should automatically get 
entered when typing in the First Name and Last Name of a new card.

If this is not going to be the behavior of 6.0, jennifer please update spec and 
mark this invalid.  If this should be the behavior, jennifer please update the 
spec and reassign to candice.

Yes, this should work the same as 4.x.  As the user type the First and Last 
name, the Display Name should be entered (First Last).  I will update the spec. 
 (I think this used to work in older seamonkey builds?)

this is a dup of another non-mailnews bug about problems with text input fields.  
Have to look it up.

this is a dup of 42045 which has been fixed and I just verified that this is
working for me again in the ab card.

I'm reopening this bug. It works fine on WinNT and on Mac.

Linux only: If I type in first name and _tab_ to lastname and fill the last
name, the lastname is not automatically filled in the Display field (firstname
is filled in the display field).  But if I use the mouse and click on lastname,
it works fine.

Builds used: Today's commercial build on all platforms.

Update: Display Name is NOT automatically get entered using today's build on 
Linux and Windows (both ways, by using tab and by using Mouse). It was working 
late last week.  

(Will update after Mac builds are out).

It's doesn't work on today's Mac build also.
Depends on: 46152

we should just mark as a duplicate of 46512
Now that bug 46152 is fixed, this one is gone too.
