Cardbook has stopped working after update to version 24.4 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi Philippe,

As it happened with the 24.3 version, after updating cardbook to the latest version 24.4 the addon has stopped working with Thunderbird 58b1

Is it me? Thanks,

Perfect it works again! thanks!.

I have got a correction if you email me.. otherwise I will publish this new version monday.... Thunderbird 58 has changed a lot of things in its code...

Editing CardBook Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hi Philippe, I have been using and negotiating the ends and outs of CardBook for about a month now. It is quite extensive and somewhat overwhelming IMO. That being said I can just use features that suits my style. However the reason for 2 stars is this; maybe there is something I'm missing, but updating or adding contacts to my regular contact list will not sync to CardBook. I have to make changes manually. Also if I make changes in CardBook I must manually make the changes in the other contact list. Its quite an aggravation and counter productive. I'm maintaining two separate contact lists within the same mail client...Just doesn't work for me and I no longer use CardBook. One other irritation; I can only access CardBook from the tools drop-down. It should be incorporated on the tool bar with its own button. I have not removed it, yet, because of time invested in set-up and learning curve.
Please let me know if there is a work-around or setting I have missed. Thanks...

Up-Date; I finally found the "switch to CardBook tab" on the tool bar all the way on the right...I'll give you 3 stars!

My Thunderbird version is; 52.5.0
Acer laptop V3.571.9646
windows 10 pro
intel 4th Gen i7-3632QM @ 2.20 GHz each core 64 bit
1 TB ssd drive
16 GB of memory

Note; I have tried to update Thunderbird, says I have the latest, no updates available. Seems odd that llucps said on November 28th, doesn't work on his version 58.0b1. I'm not sure what to believe as to version.

Did not like it because is does not behave with common sense Rated 1 out of 5 stars

If i update a contact in the Cardbook, I expect THAT contact to also be updated in my Thunderbird contact book and visa versa. IT DOES NOT

CardBook is an address book totally independant from the Thunderbird standard address book. It aim is to fully replace it.

Irreplaceable product Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If CardBook didn't exist I'd either need to create it myself or move to a different mail eco-system. This and Lightning make Thunderbird complete.

When I wrote this review four days ago I only gave CardBook four stars. It had worked well for me from the start, but about six weeks ago stopping validating with Baikal on SSL (I'm on 23.5, but 23.4 was the same).

I contacted Philippe, who responded immediately, and the issue was resolved in a few minutes. It turns out CardBook uses Basic Auth, and Baikal was configured to expect Digest Authentication. An easy fix, and I couldn't be more impressed with Philippe's support for this plugin.

Tout bien mais Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Génial ce module ! Difficile de s'en passer une fois que l'on y a gouté.
Mais (car souvent il y en a un) je rencontre un pb avec mon Syno. C'est systématique quand les contacts sont créés dans Cardbook, ils ne remontent pas sur le serveur. Alors que dans le sens inverse cela marche.
Là ou c'est vraiment énervant, c'est que la mise à jour par Cardbook d'un contact créé sur le syno fonctionne sans problème.
Si vous avez une piste, je prends !!
Bravo pour le boulot.

Helpful - but no new categories possible Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very helpful add-on. Really great!
I have difficulty however to add new categories.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (23.2). 

with Google contacts it's not possible to add categories because of a bug in Google CardDAV API...

Has stopped synchronizing Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Was off to a promising start but no longer synchronizes new contacts from the server. No error message to identify the problem, just -- the new contacts never show up.

Problème Cardbook version 22.5: ne fonctionne pas Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Vient d'installer une nouvelle version de Cardbook (22.5) en raison de problèmes avec l'ancienne (plus de possibilités de modifier mes différents carnets d'adresses, d'ajouter ou de déléter des adresses). Là, ça ne marche plus du tout: toutes les fonctions des menus sont grisés. Version Thunderbird: 52.3.0

Hat mal gut funktioniert - aktuell furchtbar Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Ich habe das Addon mal sehr gerne genutzt - war ein echter Mehrwert für mich.

Seit einiger Zeit ist Thunderbird bei mir jedoch furchtbar träge gewesen, in der Nachrichtenliste konnte ich z. B. sekundenlang zuschauen, bis der Cursorbalken sich von einer Nachricht zur nächsten bewegt hat, das Öffnen von E-Mails dauerte ähnlich lange.

Habe dann nach und nach Addons deaktiviert und Thunderbird jeweils neu gestartet, bises wieder schneller lief - letztes deaktiviertes Addon war CardBook. Danach habe ich alle anderen Addons wieder aktiviert und Thunderbird reagierte weiterhin so zügig wie früher gewohnt.

Meine Schlussfolgerung: irgendwas macht CardBook bei aktuellen Thunderbird-Versionen falsch und zieht damit das gesamte Programm runter.

Leider so nicht mehr zu empfehlen.

Hi Christopher

In CardBook preferences, first tab, check “Unique source for contacts”, if this is not enough, in Thunderbird preferences, Display tab, then Advanced tab, uncheck “Show only display name for people in my address book”.

Parfait Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Très efficace. La synchronisation avec le carnet d'adresse de Gmail se met en place sans problème.
Une suggestion : pouvoir afficher les noms sous la forme :
"nom", (virgule) "prénom" comme thunderbird pour améliorer la lisibilité.
Et demander une confirmation en cas de suppression d'un nombre important de contacts. J'ai fait une erreur et, par change, ai pu récupérer mes anciennes adresses.
+++ ma demande d'ajout d'une virgule a été prise en compte le jour même. Impressionnant. Merci Philippe.

Bonjour
lors d'une suppression, une confirmation est demandée, et OK pour la virgule ;O)

Excellent addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works a treat. One thing I can´t find is "Automatically add outgoing email adresses to my:" under Thunderbird - Options - Composition - Adressing.
I only get to choose between my Thunderbird adress books and not the ones from CardBook. Am I missing something?
Keep up the good work!

thanks :O) (outgoing email collection is in CardBook preferences, first tab ;O)

CardDAV support should be integral part of Thunderbird Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This AddOn fixes a huge gap in TBs features. If one uses TB seriously (for work, several accounts and identities, etc.), one needs to access "global" address books, and be able to manage family accounts using ownCloud etc.

A HUGE THANKS to Philippe who took the challenge. He's responsive in his forum and fixes bugs quickly. What else could we demand for? Well, INTEGRATION @thunderbird-devs !

[SOLVED] Performance options possible? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Congratulations for creating such an useful extension!

But once installed the performance of Thunderbird, while navigating between emails, even scrolling, goes significantly down.
Is it possible to create a performance setting to uncouple CardBook (hooks) from viewing emails?

RE: After reading the last entry. (My French is not very well.) I've seen your comment to this issue. THIS SOLVED THE PROBLEM!

Très pratique Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Pour la 21.8, Fonctionnellement parlant rien à dire l'addon fait le job et c'est très appréciable, cependant sous Thunderbird 52.2.1 (ubuntu 17.04) le plugin ralenti la machine et Thunderbird devient difficilement utilisable. Une fois l'addon désactivé tout rentre dans l'ordre.

Note : Avec la 20.7 le logiciel fonctionne parfaitement.

Màj : la version 21.8 est parfaitement fonctionnelle avec la modification des préférences indiqué par le développeur. Merci !
