User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:9.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/9.0.1
Build ID: 20111220165912

Steps to reproduce:

Received a (spam) mail where the "From:" field contained the 'í' character.


Actual results:

Instead of the "From:" content the name of a adressbook entry is displayed in the message list while the sender in the message tab is displayed correctly. I can reproduce this bug with own mails using a sender adress that cotains this character.

Disabling the feature of replacing senders with a adressbook entry let the bug disapear. Deleting the adressbook entry displayed (for all mails the same one) leads to another entry beeing displayed.

Actually, the problem is not only with non-ascii entries, it is with ascii entries as well. 

In my inbox, I can choose to display the name or e-mail address of some senders. But I cannot do that to another group of senders. It seems that deleting their addressbook entries and creating them again solves the issue, because maybe there are duplicate entries and Thunderbird refers to another copy than the one I change.

I'm not sure if this is coercible related to the bug that I repoted as a _random_ adressbook entry is displayed instead of the unknown sender.
