  • I keep seeing reviews that says this add-on does not work. I am using Thunderbird 52.2.1 on 7/10/2017 and it is working perfectly for me.
  • The review by RJGync said this add-on no longer worked. I just tested it with the latest Thunderbird 45 and it works okay.

    The problem mentioned by markrlondon on October 17, 2011 was still true on a PC.

    "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"."

    Trying to copy the full name and address to Notepad on a PC shows no line breaks in the address. It is all one line. It is still a bit easier than copying each part of the address separately but it is annoying.

    It is doubtful this will ever get fixed since the add-on is so old. But if the developer ever sees this, maybe the line break character being inserted is wrong for PCs but ok for Macs... please fix if possible. Thanks.
  • For a while, I used this add-on frequently; now it no longer works with the newer Tbird versions, and there is no replacement.
    The problem is larger than one extension -- Tbird's address book display has become buggy and there is a real need for improvement, including the ability to copy text.
    It is very sad that this is no longer working.
  • I have used this add-on for some time and found it very useful indeed. I keep all my customer addresses in Thunderbird address book and this add-on was the only way to copy the name and address in one click. Unfortunately it no longer works in Thunderbird 45.2.0 and as far as I can see there has been no development since 2011. Is it still being supported?
  • 非常に優れた開発者(speedball2001)が、★5の評価(June 4, 2011)を与えていたので、注目しました。

    「解説」の機能は、実際に待望していました。
    今まで、このアイテムの存在に気付かなかったことが残念です。
    この機能は、Thunderbirdがdefaultすべきものです。
    必携です。推奨します。
  • Very useful.
  • ... it seems, that it isn't working with TB 31.1./ Lightning 3.3
    I could need it, if it worked. :-(
  • 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?
  • 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.
  • 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

    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.
  • 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.
    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!
    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.
  • Is update for TB6 coming up? I know its very recent. Does not seem to work with it.
    The extension is marked as compatible with TB6.*. Please update your rating!
  • 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.
    Version 1.5 is now available, and supports TB 5.0.
  • 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.
  • It works very well!
    But, I request an important feature: copy all namecard information.
    Is this a big request?
    Thanx!
    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
  • 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?
    Version 1.4 should provide localized address label formats.
  • 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.
    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.
  • It's fantastic help. Great job! I do not understand why this feature is not supported at the first place.
    Thanks a lot!
  • Just thought of another suggestion :)

    When copying addresses, it would be nice to have the ability to appended the name of the person before the address. At the moment to get a full address I have to copy the name from the Contact area and the address from the Home or Work area.
