Very useful.

a very useful idea, but... Rated 2 out of 5 stars

... it seems, that it isn't working with TB 31.1./ Lightning 3.3
I could need it, if it worked. :-(

Where have you been all my life! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

OMG, I've cursed the lack of this feature a thousand times. I almost changed email/address books just because of this alone. Dude! Where can I send you money?

THE Missing Feature Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great extension ! !
THE missing feature from Thunderbird is corrected thanks to this add-on.

Add the function Copy from the list of contacts (to copy all the information of the contact quickly -same thing as "Select All + Copy selection") and I give you the fifth star.
Still a great job as it is ! !
Thanks for that .

Χρήσιμο.

Like it! How's about... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using this for several months with no issues - and saved a lot of extra keystrokes - thanks.

How's about some paste functions as well? I mean, the number of times I have to split up an address and paste each line into TB's contact properties, not to mention email & tel numbers on different tabs. Dragging items between address fields doesn't work (it copies!). It must be possible:-
1. User recognizes address/tel/email is missing. Clicks on it: opens relevant tab in Properties.
2. User copies address from wherever (Word, web...), and paste is handled intelligently, putting the right lines in the right TB fields.
3. User saves contact; Properties closes and returns.

I'd use that extension!

Cheers

Agree

I totally agree, those would be cool features. Unfortunately I'm not skilled enough today to implement that kind of thing. Also, I think it would be more difficult than you think to automatically recognize all the different kinds of international phone numbers and address formats.

Good but some bugs Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hello, thank you for a very useful and very promising addon. However, 1.5 has a few bugs running in TB 7.0.1 on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

1) When a complete address (either private or work) is highlighted and copied using 'Copy Selection' then the second address field (the one without a label) is included even when it's blank. If it's blank it should really be collapsed in the copied text.

2) All of 'Copy Name & Home Address', 'Copy Home Address', 'Copy Name & Work Address' and 'Copy Work Address' produce copied text that has no line breaks in it. E.g. "John Smith1234Main StreetBigtown90210USA".

3) When the Enigmail addon is loaded then Select Address Book Text's right click menu conflicts with Enigmail's menu on the email address field. Only Enigmail's menu appears and Select Address Book Text's does not.

Hope this is helpful.

Can't replicate

Greetings. Thanks for your review. The "Copy Home Address" context menu items are meant to copy the full address and should automatically add line breaks where needed. I can't replicate your problem on Mac platform and have heard no complaints from other users about this. I agree that extra line breaks get inserted if you simply copy a text selection, which is why the context menu items exist.

I was able to install version 1.5 into Thunderbird 6.0.1 today. Just extract the files, and modify the install.rdf file. I set the maxVersion to 7.0, and set the version to 1.5.W (for Wilbur!). Replace the install.rdf file in the .xpi package and install. Initial tests show it is working as expected!

Compatible with TB6

The extension is now marked as compatible with TB6.*, meaning all versions of TB6. You shouldn't have to do anything special.
Sadly, the new upgrade policies for TB are making it hard to keep up.

Update fo TB6? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Is update for TB6 coming up? I know its very recent. Does not seem to work with it.

Thanks, always thought it was dumb we could not copy the text.
Makes it alot quicker to copy and paste info.
Should be part of FF

No longer works with TB 5.0.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4). 

Now works

Version 1.5 is now available, and supports TB 5.0.

Edit option missing. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works flawlessly with TB3.1.10 and Windows XP SP3. Would be great, if users could edit text, right after double clicking it.

Nice addon to Thunderbird's addressbook. Makes you wonder why this is not a standard feature.

Excellent, simple to use and useful. I like it. Hope it moves forward to Thunderbird 3.3 or whatever the next version number is.

Good job! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works very well!
But, I request an important feature: copy all namecard information.
Is this a big request?
Thanx!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4). 

Thanks. Others also have made the same request. It's something I do not have the skills or resources to accomplish now, especially on multiple computer platforms. You might check out "MoreFunctionsForAddressBook" which has better export functions.

Works very well under Windows 7. I´d also like to add the German address format and am looking forward for implementation. Thanx for your work. DJDDoS

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.2). 

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately the address is always copied in the English format:

Johann Doe
Anystreet 72
Berlin, 23408

The German address format is:

Johann Doe
Anystreet 72
23408 Berlin

Any chance to implement custom formats?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.2). 

Yes

Version 1.4 should provide localized address label formats.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Excellent add-on. Would love to see a right-click -> copy entry function.
BTW, I too have TBird 3.0.4 but unlike Tom Hubert I cannot use right-click to copy a contact's entry from the address book. So: Tom, what am I doing wrong? (Or: What are you doing right?)

Option to copy all available data? Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks for the add-on. Any chance of a context menu option to copy all *available* data for the contact?
I have TB 3.0.4, which has that option when you right click on a contact in the address book list, but what is copied includes empty fields and their description, which take ages to edit out.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.1). 

Re: Option to copy all available data?

Thanks. Using regular mouse select, cut and paste - which this extension also enables - should satisfy most of your needs. It will not copy any text for empty fields. I also suspect you are using the "More Functions for AddressBook" extension which is clouding the issue a bit.
