Alternative now available Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Users of this add-on will be pleased to know that a very similar add-on has been released which does the same thing but works with more recent releases of Thunderbird. Take a look at mathaens AddressBook in Tab.This user has a previous review of this add-on.

I am surprised that no one has grabbed this and ran with a new add on or an update to this one.
I loved it when it worked now I use shift/ctel/b to open it and it's not as easy as it was. Miss it.
deprecated ? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
shame there is no update...
Starting to get buggy Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This excellent add-on definitely needs updating; on v45 it now causes Contacts to be buggy. Sadly had to disable it ... hope the author or another steps up to bring it up to date.
Needs updating Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This extension is very useful, but needs updating to work properly with Thunderbird 38.5 and newer.
The problem: The last opened address book is not remembered between sessions. There has been a bug (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1142705) with the contacts sidebar not remembering the last opened address book. The bug is solved in TB 38.5.
@developer: Can you please make Address Book Tab remember the last opened address book between sessions? This would be greatly appreciated.

Very useful feature added to TB
The idea is good but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars
IMHO the idea of this extension is very good and should be part of standard TB features. Anyway, IMHO this extension has some faults which should be corrected. In fact I tried to install AddressBookTab (ABT) more than once using it with different versions of TB but the basic problems I found are always the same. In particular, in this moment I'm using version 1.5 of ABT with TB for Windows 24.1.0. FYI, I also installed other extensions, the more relevant from this point of view being "MoreFunctionsForAddressbook" and "ContactTabs". But even if I disable these extensions I still have the following problem. That is, if I click on the ABT icon nearby to the Lightning's ones, the AB which appears in the tab is always the first one of the list, ie the Personal Addressbook (PAB).
Beside, if I click again (after having activated the option to have more than one addressbook in tabs) it always open tabs with duplicates of the PAB. I need to change manually the tabs with other addressbooks. The worst thing however is that if I close TB, next time I open it, yes I have multple tabs but all of them are pointing to the PAB yet, ie ABT does not save my choices between TB session!
What I suggest is to have the icon of ABT with a dropdown menu reporting all the addressbooks (for example I have 6 of them besides the default ones - ie PAB & Collected addresses) with check marks, so one can choose that/those addressbook(s) (s)he wants to have in tabs. Besides, this choiche should be remembered between TB sessions.
Thanks for the attention.

Esse complemento é tão bom que deveria vir por padrão no Thunderbird.
Great Add-On, should be made part of Thunderbird Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Just one request for Ubuntu Unity users, the File, Edit, View, Tools, Help menus should move to the top panel when Address-book is displayed in a tab-view mode.
FYI – Using Thunderbird 17.0.7 under Ubuntu 12.04.2
icon change Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Extensions is simple and efective. The only thing I would change is that the icon of the button uses the same style as the other buttons and the lightning-tabs buttons.
Broken with TB 17? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Stopped working for me with v17 of Thunderbird. Can anybody confirm this? Before that it was great.
better together Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is a great addon, however, it does somewhat partial job. When opening an individual contact, we still get a new window which limits the navigation. There would be a great way of fixing this, if doubleclicking a contact in AddressBookTab would open a contact in Contact Tabs. If the searchbox of Contact Tabs would be available in AddressBookTab, it would also help sorting out the outstanding issue of TB that you cannot find someone e.g. by phone number. Please consider - talk to each other guys.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Petit conflit Rated 4 out of 5 stars
J'ai constaté un conflit entre le module et celui de Paolo Kaosmos : MoreFunctionsForAddressBook. Quand ce dernier est activé, le nom des répertoires ne s'affiche plus dans le titre de l'onglet.
I found a conflict between the module and the one of Paolo Kaosmos: MoreFunctionsForAddressBook. When the latter is enabled, adressbooks name no longer appears in the tab title.
addressbooktab cannot read the userchrome.css Rated 5 out of 5 stars
very excellent addon!
I find one problem: when I open the addressbook in tab, the userchrome.css file doesnot effect addressbook, but if I open addressbook directly(not use addressbooktab addon) ,then the userchrome.css can effect the addressbook well. Can you tell me how to solve this problem? thanks a lot!
