Finally a crucial part of addressbook is available: intelligent search! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Fantastic! I can't belive this isn't part of the Core or at least a permanently recommended AddOn!
My dearest wish would be to also have Categories (as e.g. the AddOns 'MoreFunctionsForAddressbook' and 'SoGo' add these) displayed and editable. To reuse the multiple choice form field code of Firefox' bookmarks would be most elegant, i guess?
Second, i often want to have a temporal sorting (think of "latest" or "recently active") at hand. For the first, CardDAVs 'last time edited' timestamp of each contact comes in handy.
(The latter need more work, including some requests for conversation statistics...)
Update got it working Rated 5 out of 5 stars
You need to customize toolbar and find the contact tab and drag it to the toolbar!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
A good addition instead of Contacts Sidebar, but ... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Until now, I've used the "Contacts Sidebar" add-on, but since version 52 TB it does not work and the author has not fixed it for a long time.
The "Contacts Tabs" add-on can be used instead of "Contacts Sidebar", but its functionality is still required. In addition to removing certain restrictions, you need to add the ability to search the address book GROUP (LISTS).

not compatible with thunderbird 45.8
edit: ...when downloaded via chrome. Installed succesfully through the thunderbird window.
Great time saver Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Contact Tabs saves a lot of time searching for names/email in multiple address books. Bonus, it works with TB52 beta and the developer is very helpful in updating.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5).
Useful addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very useful because of the search by any field feature which is great.
However "Contact Tabs supports all fields of Thunderbird's default address book" is not correct because tab display and edit mode does not include "IRC Nick" field (search engine uses it and it is possible to search by this field).
Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Only add a new contact is missingThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.13).
Problems with TB 45.0 & support Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is not a review. I just want to stress the fact that in the "Developer's comment" the author states: "Please do not use the reviews as a way to notify me of bugs as it does not give me a way to get back to you".
So, as I am the translator into Italian of this addon, I wrote here a note some days ago concerning the problem of ContactTabs with TB 45.0. Then I wrote to the author (Janek Schwartz) who reply to me: "...It works in TB 45b04 but doesn't in TB45. Oh, how I love this!" I sent him the console errors I found and I suppose he is going to update this very useful addon as soon as he has a bit of time.
Contact Tabs / VS Thunderbird 45 ? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Contact Tabs does not function properly anymore with TB 45. It was OK with TB 38.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.12).
Edit: I submitted a new version of Contact Tabs. It should be available soon. In the mean time, you may want to download it from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/contact-tabs/versions/2.0.13 and install it yourself.
Contact Tabs currently does not work with Thunderbird 45. I'm a bit short of time at the moment, but be assured that I'll try to fix it.

Love the add-on, but perhaps broken in TB31? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
** - fixed!! Thanks for the quick attention Janek!
A 5-star for the usual excellent functionality!
I believe however it may have been broken in TB31? When I open a contact, I cannot seem to save any changes? Perhaps only something happening locally?
Fixed in Version 2.0.12
Thank you for letting me know. I fixed this in version 2.0.12. You can either wait until Mozilla reviews this version and Thunderbird updates it automatically, or download it from https://addons.mozilla.org/de/thunderbird/addon/contact-tabs/versions/2.0.12

Отличное приложение, еще бы русский добавитьThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.10).
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Solves a major frustration with Thunderbird (namely it took too many mouse clicks to find a contact), but, as indicated, it seems not to work properly with the gContactSync add-on, where phone numbers might not be shown with the proper labels. Fortunately, it appears to work fine (so far) with the Google Contacts add-on.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.10).
this is a problem with gContactSync.Contact Tabs supports all fields of Thunderbird's default address book but not those that are introduced by third-party addons such as gContactSync.
I suggest you use Google Contacts for syncing with contacts with Google.
autocomplete in calendar Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Although the version 2.0.10 fixes the autocomplete issue in the TB new mail function, it still does not work in the calendar.
Otherwise a great add-on, thanks. If I could have a request, I would like to be able to add a photo as well if creating a new contact or editing an existing one without a photo.
Please send an Email
please get in touch via email and describe the problem with the calendar.
