I reported this as Bug 498291

I have the "From" and "Recipient" both selected because this folder holds both incoming and outgoing mail.

So for you it's the same bug mitra ?
yes - same bug, but different context, i.e. missing "From" in a "Sent" folder is minor, if its missing in your incoming folder (as it is for me) then its a pretty serious - should be blocking - bug.

Summary: Missing sender column in sent folders → "From" column in no longer available for Sent folder
On some but not all accounts the From column is missing from the respective INBOX! I could do without Recipient column for a while, but a missing From column is a showstopper.

I notice the AddOn ShowInOut has now been updated and works on the nightly's, and gives us the unified Who column (it calls it "Correspondant") so if not being able to see the Recipient is making TB unusable for you ... (as it is for me)
FWIW, comment 5 was an issue with my profile, which I worked around by creating a new one.
when I updated (to correct the lack of fuunctionality of inbox and outbox buttons in the toolbar, I lost the "from" column in my inbox displayed messages (now says "who" and lists recipients, which is no help to me).  This says resolved, but it's still a problem for me. What was the resolution of this bug?
