Description of problem:

Having some address bokk antries in thunderbird with a screen name field. If I remove such a screen name, pressing then OK does not close this dialog window, and I have additionally to press CANCEL. After stopping thunderbird and starting again, I still see these removed screen name enttries.

How reproducible:
Alwyas

Steps to Reproduce:

See description

Expected results:

2. I checked this in Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS, but there the entries remain removed as
   expected.

I'm not sure if I get it right. See attached video for demonstration. This doesn't work for you? What kind of address book do you use (local, ldap)?

Comment 2 Joachim Backes 2012-04-08 08:14:37 UTC
Local and ldap. The problem appears with the local address book!

Comment 3 Jan Horak 2012-05-03 14:05:34 UTC
Run thunderbird by:
thunderbird -jsconsole
This opens debugging javascript console. See if there show up any errors or warnings in console while clicking on OK button.

Comment 4 Joachim Backes 2012-05-03 14:37:16 UTC
Nothing appears in the jconsole if I press OK or cancel after having removed the screen name for some entry in the local address book.

Comment 5 Jan Horak 2012-08-15 09:41:48 UTC
Do you still see this issue? If you do try test with fresh profile. I'm unable to reproduce it.

If I try a new fresh profile, I cannot reproduce the reported issue too.

Comment 7 Jan Horak 2012-08-15 13:02:19 UTC
Looks like some mess in profile, closing as WFM.

Comment 8 Joachim Backes 2012-08-15 14:38:22 UTC
I could solve my issues in a more simple way: export the concerned address book and import it's contents to another one. There I could remove the "Screen name" entries without problems.
