User Agent: Opera/9.80 (X11; Linux x86_64) Presto/2.12.388 Version/12.16
Steps to reproduce:
Have my account set-up so that it will automatically fill-in/add a Cc mail address.
Click on a mail which is received.
Click on the reply button.
Only the To is filled in, no Cc field with the configured Cc mail address for that mail account/identity.
The Cc field should have been filled with the configured mail address for that specific account/identity.
Does it also fail in safe mode?
(always good to test safe mode and mention it in bug report)
Yes i have tested in safe mode :).
I Also just tested it with the 24.0b3 Windows build, and it also happens there.
Then i thought of something, what happens if i enter an different mail address then which is used as sender.
For example i have email@example.com as account and enter firstname.lastname@example.org as a default Cc, this won't work.
When i add email@example.com it does..
So somewhere there is a check to see if it matches the sender.
Maybe this can be turned on or off if with a special setting??
anything in Tools -> Error console when this happens ?
Checked the Tools > Error console, also nothing.
Tested a few other versions, and for some strange reason it works only on the 17 build for me...
After that it stops working.
Tried every build since 17, including the daily 26 build.
All with a clean profile.
Am i missing some "hidden" setting?
Confirming with Thunderbird 24.0b3 build 1 on Windows XP SP3.
Doesn't happen with Thunderbird 17.0.8 on same machine -> regression.
This seems to be a regression from the fix for bug 250187. Replying to a mail runs through http://hg.mozilla.org/comm-central/annotate/24c9b80011a2/mailnews/compose/src/nsMsgCompose.cpp#l2774
A few lines below at http://hg.mozilla.org/comm-central/diff/931f0547903c/mailnews/compose/src/nsMsgCompose.cpp , the "duplicate" CC mail address get removed.
Requesting blocking-thunderbird24 because this affects many setups where people share a mail address and use the auto cc to make each other aware of replies (e.g. in voluntary organizations).
Magnus, was this part of the change intentional?
No, just and overlooked edge-case.
Archaeopteryx [:aryx] 2013-09-17 05:47:21 PDT is correct.

This is important to us. Had I known about this bug, I would not have installed Tbird 24.0 for our group.
It appears that only the "Cc" field is affected, not though the "Bcc" entry. Switching the checkboxes in the Copies & Folders Account Settings and making my own address "Bcc" to works on a reply, whereas using the "Cc" version fails to fill it in. So, this might serve as a suitable workaround for the time being.
Possible work around?
Enter your address in the Settings menu, as a cc with a different case.
instead of firstname.lastname@example.org use ABC@sample.com
Uses one Thunderbird bug to compensate for another :-)
IMO, it is a bug that TBird considers emails with a different case to be different email addresses, but that bug is useful here !
FWIW, i think i have fixed this locally. Still need to test, write tests, and clean it up.

This fixes it, and cleans things up a bit + tests for auto-cc.
I resisted cleaning up the prevalent if(mIdentity) nonsense for now...

Looks good, r=Standard8
Pushed to trunk to get landed for branches:
*** Bug 923759 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
See also Bug 759018, which explains the problems with Reply-All in terms of sorting out the To: and Cc: lines. Truly a problem with TB that I still need to fix with EVERY E-mail I send. Honestly, I don't care about the IDN E-mail addresses and all the other stuff that gets added. This To/Cc rewriting (as I explained in Bug 759018, also known as Eudora style) is the MOST IMPORTANT feature to me because I need to workaround this on EVERY E-mail.
*** Bug 928129 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
It's great that this will be going out, because I'm sure many enterprisy folks use this.
