FWIW, my TBird doesn't do this. When I "Reply to all" on a message where I was one of the addressees, it does NOT include my address as one of the "To" addresses for the reply.

Does it still do this if you try it while running in Mozilla Safe Mode? This is a troubleshooting mode which will run with default theme and with all extensions and a few other things disabled. If the problem clears up under Safe Mode, you'll know there is a good chance the problem is with a theme or extension.

Now you can investigate which one is the problem by disabling one or more at a time and restarting the program. When the problem clears up, you'll know it is caused by one of the disabled ones, and you can refine further.
