From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9) Gecko/20010505 BuildID: 2001050515 I have intuitively pressed the 'to:' button to select the receipant only to remember I have to hit address button first. This is an extra step which should be eliminated. Simply put it is annoying. Expected Results: I press the 'To:' button and I get my address box. I would adopt the approach Outlook uses having multiple names on one line and the 'to:' selects address book; this approach is "cleaner" and I know has less overhead on the UI. Now for the twist... merge the receipent selection process with the main address book - create a separate pane and buttons. For example.... the display card pane could switch with a To: listing window. Or: what about adding an address pane like in Star Office; I want to look up someone I open the pane and my address book is right there with my composition window *and* the same type of pane in in the address book. The ultimate goal would be to have the address book as a main jumping point for functions, like, starting a chat session. A future whiteboard session? A telephone call? Yes it sounds like MS but hey it works. Also there should be selection dialog for newsgroups. Taking the above idea I would make the 'subscribe' box the jumping point for newsgroups. That is I could go there select my newsgroups and press a 'post to' button and the composition is automatically set up. Here is a broader suggestion look at other designs and well take the best ideas from them an merge them with mozilla - quit trying to reinvent the shape of the wheel.

Copying a suggestion here from Bug 164930: double-clicking on the little address card in the field should open the address book -- currently, that icon does nothing but take up space. Also, there should be a hotkey to open the address book when the focus is on one of these fields. Updating summary to more general wording. OS for this is probably 'all'.
Summary: [UI] Make To: buttom more intuitive - calls address book directly → UI at To: field to open address book directly
sorry for the spam. making bugzilla reflect reality as I'm not working on these bugs. filter on FOOBARCHEESE to remove these in bulk.
