Contacts Sidebar isn't compatible??? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I just installed thunderbird and now I am a first time user. Very nice but no contacts sidebar??? Never mind an add-on, it should be included in the base product!!!

Please update or release code for others to work with! One star for successfully tantalizing us masochists. :-)

Why isn't this being updated? ; ; Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Such a fundamentally useful addon that seems to have been abandoned. Sad.

thunderbird no Rated 4 out of 5 stars

lo admite en el 30! y le doy todas las oportunidades antes que a Kontact. Me quedaré con thunderbird pero sin los addons, que a estos les falta un empujón bueno para aprovechar el parón de thunderbird....

Perfect&Beautiful with TB17 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I updated automatically to 17 today and tried to install Contacts via the automatic install. This did not work. So I installed it by going to the dev site, downloading it from there and then using the TB instal from file option.
I am using TB 17 now with Lightening and the Silver Mel theme. Contacts side bar looks beautiful in this set up and it is working perfectly.

Thank you for a great plugin!

Current releases can be found on the homepage. Version 1.7pre is compatible with Thunderbird 16.

Btw the check mark in the View|Layout menu is still inverted. It should be checked when the sidebar is visible, not when it's hidden.

Must Have! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is definately a must have for anyone with ldap addresbooks!

Although, it has become less useful in the new releases now that the autopopulate ldap addressbooks has stopped working.

Great add-on !
Unfortunately v1.6pre is not working with TB15.

I did a quick and dirty fix to make it compatible with the latest Thunderbird version.

You can download the fixed version on my blog:

Upgrade TB with this indispensable Add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Contacts Sidebar will quickly become an indispensable Add-on, placing Address Book access and features in a sidebar on TB's main window. I configured mine to display contacts, along with their mobile, home & biz phone numbers in columns. You can adjust the spacing between columns to make the sidebar compact. Double clicking on a contact will open a new Message Window, adding another means, and making it that much more convenient to write new email to your contact.

Unfortunately, this Add-on has not been updated on this page for some time, and for some unknown reason. The Add-on is alive and well on the authors web page in the form of "Pre-releases".

<a style="color:#006620; background-color:#fff9ab" class="linkification-ext" href="" title="Linkification:"></a>

I would certainly encourage the author to place an update here on the official Add-on page.

Be a little patient for Jeroen to catch up on major TB version updates, it's well worth it!

In Thunderbird 14.0, double-clicking on a name in the sidebar doesn't open the composition window anymore. :-(
