Problem mit TB 24.3.0 und Win7 (Ultimate) 64 bit Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hallo Andreas.

Die Kontakte sind da (Adressbuch/Windows), aber es werden keine Namen angezeigt.
Kontakte die - noch - keine Email haben muß man einzeln anklicken, dann sieht man Telefonnummern, Geburtstag etc UND den Namen unter 'Kontakt' 'Name' bzw. 'Vorname'.
Kontakkte mit Email - in der Liste unter Adressbuch/Windows haben alle unter 'Name' das, was in der Email-Adresse vor dem @ steht...

Directory-Pfad und alles korrekt eingestellt und überprüft.

Kannst Du mir eventuell helfen?

<quote>Have you checked the settings at addon Manager for WLC?</quote>Hallo Andreas, habe m. E. richtig konfiguriert. Habe den Pfad mit c:\Benutzer\Mein Name\Kontakte und versuchsweise c:\user\MeinName\contacts eingetragen. Beide Möglichkeiten brachten kein Ergebnis. Vielleicht weil mein Name einen Umlaut enthält? Wenn ich den Befehl "get directory" ausführe und danach den richtigen Pfad auswähle, werden die Kontakte schlicht nicht angezeigt. Und nach "o.k." bleibt die Zeile, in der der Pfad erscheinen sollte, leer.

Problem with TB 16.0.2 Win7 64b Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi Andreas,
I'm using a win7 64bits with TB 16.0.2 and I have problem to configure the contacts directory, when I get the good directory, nothing apears on the field.
When I write directly the link C:\Users\MyName\Contacts and I try to load my Windows contacts nothing happens if I return in my address book I can not find the Windows folder. Can you help me?

Hi Andreas, this add-on is great, exactly what I was looking for!
I am used to separating my contacts into sub-directories such as 'Friends', 'Family' etc. Since the add-on only looks in the root of the contacts directory, I made a few code modifications to recourse it into sub-directories.
Now, I couldn't, for the life of me, figure out how to contact you directly and send you the changes I've made. What do you think is the best way to do that?
Thanks!

Hi Pixeler,

can you enable to see your email address in your mozilla profile?

.group import unvollständig Rated 5 out of 5 stars

.group Datensätze werden nur übernommen, wenn sie eine email Adresse enthalten. Da ich diese Daten auch benutze um eine FritzBox zu synchronisieren, hätte ich gerne alle Einträge.
Ansonsten sehr zufrieden mit der Erweiterung.

Missing Birthday-Sync Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thank you for updating the AddOn, the new version 0.3.5 works fine with Thunderbird 8.x! :) One thing is not working correctly: Import of the birthday. Unfortunatly that was the main reason for using the PlugIn (importing the birthdates of my adressbook for AddOn ThunderBirthDay) - is there a chance for a fix? :)

Birthday Import was fixed

Hello Enigma,

Import of Birthdays should now be possible.

Interface changed by mozilla

Hello,

mozilla has changed the function of "nsIRDFService". I use this class to get the path of the local address-book.

Now I always get an error by executing the method "Get Resource" with reference to "moz-abdirectory://" like this:

rdfService."GetResource("moz-abdirectory://").QueryInterface(Components.interfaces.nsIAbDirectory); "

I posted the problem on the developer forum of mozilla without any response or solution until now.

I would be happy If someone of the mozilla-crew gave me any background information about the new way to do this, and told my the reason for changing. At the moment I'm not able to spend a lot of time for searching an own solution.

The coding of this add-on is open for everybody. If someone wants to join as co-developer it will be possible every time.

best regards

Andreas

Zuerst Pfad angeben Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Es kann notwendig sein, in Extras; Add-Ons; Erweiterungen; Windows Contacts Loader; Einstellungen: zuerst den Pfad einzustellen, sonst wird nichts gefunden.
Bei mir wird in TB 5 der Name des Adressbuches (Windows) nicht angezeigt. Es erscheint ein Adressbuch ohne Name. Erst nach dem Neustart von TB erscheint auch der Name. Es sollte beachtet werden, dass beim Neuladen des Adressbuches alle evtl. in TB diesem Adressbuch hinzugefügte Daten verloren gehen.

I just have the same problems as ak4mc:

I use this extension to sync my iPhone contacts with Thunderbird; however not all of my iPhone contacts have email addresses, and when Thunderbird loads groups and encounters a contact in that group that has no email address, it stops loading contacts in that group.

Would be very nice, if this could be corrected.

Thanks

Great for syncing my iPhone with Thunderbird Address book Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi Andreas,

Great add-on, just what you need to sync windows contacts with thunderbird. Also exactly what you need to sync your iPhone, iPad through mobileme with Thunderbird on Windows. I think a lot of people are looking for this. Maybe change the descriptions of the add-on to English?

Genau das richtige Werkzeug um Kontaktdateien von Windows7 ins Adressbuch TB zu kopieren. Bei mir wurden nur die Gruppennamen übertragen, es fehlten die Inhalte (e-mali Adressen).

Hallo Andreas,
cooles Add-On - Mir geht nur noch die Gegenrichtung ab, damit eine echte Syncronisation möglich ist.
Nice Day

sehr gut! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This was exactly what I was looking for :) It worked perfectly and is great for keeping TB's address book and my iPhone in sync via occasional updates: iPhone -> Windows Contacts -> TB3. I give it only 4 stars because it is obviously incomplete from a features/GUI perspective. But the core functionality is there and works very well indeed!

E-mail an Verteilerliste - E-mails müssen noch einmal eingegeben werden...
