The behavior with groups from the TB address book allows you to simply type the group name. The enhancement I'm asking for would have TB treat groups from the Mac address book in the same way it treats those from it's own address book. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. create a group in the mac address book 2. open TB address book 3. select group from Mac addrtess book 4. select "Write" from TB address book (You will get a message creation pane with all the addresses from the Mac address book group) 5. select "Write" from the main TB pane. 6. type the name from the Mac address book Actual Results: TB will not find the name from the Mac address book. Expected Results: TB should find that name and allow a message to be sent to all the email addresses in that group.
Didn't find any duplicates.
Does this still reproduce?
It seems to be working good to me. I created a new group of addresses directly on Mac OS X Contacts app. Added some addresses to it. On Thunderbird (tested on latest 38 beta 6 build), click on Write. On the new dialog box, start typing the name of the list (in my case "pirates") is auto-completing the field to "pirates <pirates>". Tested on Mac OS X 10.10.3, don't know if it is not working good on previous releases of OS X (even on the same 10.10, but previous ones). Although I was unable to reproduce, I am not exactly sure if it should be closed.
Thanks. I think close WFM and if someone disagrees we can reopen. If original failure is related to (older) OS X version there's not much we can do
