Great Add-On, Very Important and Helpful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is so useful and important to my email-intensive job. This replaces "Contacts Sidebar" add-on, which stopped working. It is add-ons like this that make Thunderbird much better then MS Outlook. Thank you for your work on this!!

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This addon has one, but extremely significant disadvantage, it works only in new message window. It would be much better and useful to see this addon below accounts and folders list, just like old "Contacts Sidebar" addon.

Search in all Adressbook Fields possible? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great Addon but it were more usefull to search in all Adressbook Fields including the Custom Fields and all other Fields.

Can you implement this please?

How does this work? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I used the Contacts Sidebar of old and was disappointed when it stopped working with newer versions of Thunderbird. Hence I was pleased when I came across Custom Address Sidebar.,

While it is not as conveniently located (you have to open the 'Write' panel rather than view it in the main Inbox view of Thunderbird) it does offer a very useful search facility, which can be configured to readily find a contact from your address list. - Be aware that you may need to enable the sidebar from the View menu, though pressing F9 also toggles the sidebar on or off.
Initially I was expecting the sidebar to appear in my main Inbox view which, as mentioned it does not, and the supplied images in the Add-Ons page didn't provide enough information for this poor English speaker to work out how/where to use or access it.
Remember Inbox> Write> View> select Contacts Sidebar to see it
See the response below for a link to an English translation of the developer's instructions.


Please visit this site, you can know how to use this add on.

Great alternative for Contacts Sidebar.

Great replacement for Contacts Sidebar Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I used to use the "Contacts Sidebar" addon, which allowed you to see field columns in the compose window side bar that are not available by default in TB. But that wasn't working for a long time. "Custom Address Sidebar" has solved that. Thanks for the great addon!!
