This is more a minor cosmetic issue, but I feel still worth reporting.
When receiving a message and the sender has special characters in his sender name (like german umlaute), the entry in the from column in the message list is sourrounded with quotation marks.
I feel like it should be displayed like every other row as it creates an unnecessary emphasis on the item with the quotation marks.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Receive a message from someone with umlaute in his sender name
2. Look into the message list
Actual Results:  
The from column entry is surrounded with quotation marks.

Expected Results:  
No quotation marks should be displayed.

This is a general problem, not only concerning addresses containing umlaute. See here https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=273884 Bug 273884 for an older description.
