1 - When creating a new email to send, in the write window, I used to be able to enter the first letter of an addressee and get a pick list of email address starting with that character.  After the 3.1.3 update, that no longer happens.

2 - The inclusion of an html file for the for a signature line no longer maintains the original font type.  The text is maintain but defaults to a different font than the original in the html file being used for the signature line.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on the Write Icon (create a new message)
2. When the new message window opens, and if a html file has been configured for the signature line, original type font changes to somthing different.
3. In the addressee field, start type a letter or two of an address that is listed in the personal address book, it no longer suggest those addresses starting with the character(s) typed...

Hi,

In 3.1.3, running in safe-mode, confirmed by the dialog for add-on that all extensions, themes, plug-ins were disabled, it does appear the drop-down address selection is working after typing in 1 or more letters in the TO: field.   So, it would appear that an add-on would be to blame for the incorrect behavior in non-safe mode.

The font style for the HTML signature is still altered however, should look like that attached below to this email.  Notice the freestyle font used after the blue/red pill pics. 3.1.3 alters the fonts to something standard when attaching to email.

I'll try to provide more detail after researching both issues a little more.

Regards,

Please contact the author of the extension/ theme causing the issue.

That might end up being fixed shortly ie in the next releases.

so the only bug that we didn't know about and that you reported is and extension issue I'll close this one as being INVALID (that's what we do for extension issues).
