User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20100423 Ubuntu/10.04 (lucid) Firefox/3.6.3 Build Identifier: Ubuntu 10.04 In Thunderbird 2 I was able to enter multiple addresses on the "To:" line, separated by commas. In Thunderbird 3 this no longer works. eg: In TB2 I could enter: To: dad, mom, tom, dick, harry When I hit the Tab key, the cursor would move down to the message body pane, and all of the addresses in the To: field would be split onto separate lines and converted to their appropriate entries in the Address Book, so it would look like: To: "dad" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: "mom" <email@example.com> To: "Tom Smith" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: "Dick van Head" <****@that.domain.com> To: "Harry Armepitte" <email@example.com> Now, in Version 3.0.4, if I enter the same thing on the "To:" line, when I hit tab the cursor still moves to the message body pane, and the addresses still split onto multiple "To:" lines, but the addresses don't seem to get looked up in the Address Book anymore: the names on the multiple lines don't get converted, it just looks like: To: dad To: mom To: tom To: dick To: harry ...and all the names are colored red. If I try to send the e-mail like that it has errors. So if I want to send to multiple recipients, I have to type one recip into the To: field, hit tab for it to do the Address Book lookup and convert the nickname into a proper address, then manually click the next "To:" field. This definitely doesn't seem like an "upgrade feature" so I assume it's a bug. Thanks, Scott Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose a new e-mail 2. Enter multiple recipients as nicknames or partial addresses (this was supported in TB2) 3. Hit tab 4. Shake fist in frustration Actual Results: I filed a bug report. Expected Results: Converted the nicknames and partial addresses into full addresses
Known regression, unfortunately not fixed in the upcoming 3.1 yet either...
