I just upgraded to TB 3.1.4. With all previous versions, when I entered part of an address that was already in my address book, TB would display that address (for example, when using Write to create a new message, and entering the address to which the message should be sent in the To: field). With 3.1.4, when most addresses already in the address book are entered, there is no display of the matching address. Only in a very few cases is the address in the address book displayed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on Write to create a new message
2.Enter (or start to enter) an address that is already in the address book
3.No match appears
Actual Results:  
No match.

Expected Results:  
The address already in the address book should be displayed next to the address being entered once enough characters of the address being entered provided at least a partial match to the address already in the address book.
