Thunderbird window disrupted by emails with semicolon separated recipients
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
When receiving emails with addresses separated by semicolons Thunderbird does
not wrap the To and CC lines. This can cause the window drawing to mess up,
loosing the search field and right hand window components. See attached png,
notice disappearance of; the search entry field, unread and total in the status
bar, columns after subject (this column was meant to take up about 1/3rd of its
pane), the activity circle at the top right and the failure to wrap the CC line.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send yourself an email with several (e.g. eight) To: addresses separated by
2. View it and expand the subject line field to display the date and recipient
Several parts of the display are pushed out of the window
Window layout should not be affected other than showing the extra information

Problem also affects TB 18.104.22.168 in Fedora Core 6. Semicolon separation of
addresses may not be correct, but it should not cause the UI to break.
Finally fixed by TB 2 in F7: UI has changed (addresses still do not wrap but TB
can no longer get into an unusable state).
I wonder if the reporter can mark closed...
