Attached file Example of such email
The card is attached and also displyed inline the email. If I click on the nice + sign to add the vcard to my address book, a sheet containing the data from the card is presented to me. I can either OK or Cancel. If I OK the button stays blue and nothing else happens. I can then click cancel to have the sheet go away.

The console log contains the following :
Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Cannot modify properties of a WrappedNative"  nsresult: "0x80570034 (NS_ERROR_XPC_CANT_MODIFY_PROP_ON_WN)"  location: "JS frame :: chrome://messenger/content/addressbook/abCardOverlay.js :: NewCardOKButton :: line 369"  data: no]

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.1b3pre) Gecko/20090223 Thunderbird/3.0b2 is the version I tested with.
Taking, will fix for b3 - I can see what its trying to do, I've got to work out if there is a valid way or not. It has certainly been an issue for quite a while, but we should fix it for final at least.

Attached patch The fixSplinter Review
Turned out easier than I thought - the reason we can't modify properties is that allowRemoteContent isn't always in the window arguments. We need to verify that it is before trying to set it to return to the caller.

Not sure this is the 100% ideal way of returning that flag, but bug 457296 would remove the need.

Also note for testing that we have bug 461660 which means allow remote image checkbox isn't shown correctly across restarts of the app (also a blocker).

The fix

Ah yes, this is because we're getting an nsIAbCard in this case, which has no such idl property.
