I found this strange behaviour when i was dealing with multiple attendees for an event. Initially the event dialog showed the attendees names scrambled and overlayed on top of each other, on resizing, it gradually spaced it out but on resize back it does not arrange them back. 

Similar to the Grow Only resize mode in C#.

I have attached a screenshot of the same.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Thunderbird and move to the calendar tab
2.Create a new event with multiple attendees
3.Open up the event dialog, from the account as an attendee.
4.Attempt to resize the dialog box and see what happens
Actual Results:  
Resizing back does not work

Expected Results:  
Resizing back should have rearranged the attendees names.

First part is probably Bug 632355, don't know if the patch from that bug will help here too.

That patch won't be of help because I think it won't handle the resizing case, but i guess one can go ahead and extend the patch to include resizing as well.

Mohit, as you reported this can you mentor the new contributer(s) on this issue? I'll just give you guys some initial links. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Simple_Thunderbird_build for setting up the build env, then you should search in calendar/base/content/dialogs/calendar-event-dialog.xul for the element. 

I seem to recall this was an issue with the toolkit listbox not behaving correctly on resize, but that would need to be confirmed.

If you would like to drop by on irc.mozilla.org #calendar, you can find me (Fallen) or Mohit (redDragon) when its convenient for you.

The implementation of the attendee box was changed with bug 1229141. Mohit, can you check again and confirm whether the issue still persists for you?
