Office Black

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

With the new 2.1 version, my menubar is transparent. Otherwise it's a nice addon. Would love to see this problem fixed (or if it is intended, an option would be nice).


Fix for the missing contact information Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's actually quite simple to fix the bug, if you can work with 7-zip and a text editor:
1) open the addressbooktab-1.4.2-tb.xpi with 7-zip file manager and go to /chrome/.
2) Open the AddressBookTab.jar there
3) go to /content/
4) and extract AddressBookTab.js, leave the 7-zip file manager _open_
5) find line 16
var generatedName = realCard.generateName(gPrefs.getIntPref("mail.addr_book.lastnamefirst"));
6) replace it with
try {
lastnamefirst = gPrefs.getIntPref("mail.addr_book.lastnamefirst");
} catch(err) {
lastnamefirst = 0;
var generatedName = realCard.generateName(lastnamefirst);
7) save the AddressBookTab.js file.
8) drag and drop the modified AddressBookTab.js to the 7-zip file manager and tell 7-zip to update the archive
9) move 4 folder levels up. If 7-zip asks if it should update the archive, confirm
10) Remove AddressBookTab 1.4.2 addon and install the modified addressbooktab-1.4.2-tb.xpi in thunderbird

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.2).

I modified the add-on so that it seems to work in Thunderbird 3 for the most part.
Please note that I don't intend to provide bug-fixes or any other improvements in the future. I only see this as a solution for the time being, until mavron publishes an updated version. The modifications may cause any number of problems or bugs, so please make a full backup :-).
I also provide this as-is without any warranty.
Please feel free to further improve this version and please share your improvements.

Kudos to mavron for this great plugin.

And here you go.

Nice Addon. Unfortunately the address tab does not work in Thunderbird 3. It says unknown entity in abContacts.xul line 38.
Hope this can be fixed. Keep up the good work.
