Sadly disabling... Puntuado con 2 de 5 estrellas

This was a great add-on but changes to the Thunderbird code mean it no longer works. Now, with the add-on enabled most of the address book data is not displayed and what does show is erratic and inconsistent. Given that the idea of an address book in a tab is so useful and intuitive I'm hoping it will be updated and reworked.

Starting to get buggy Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

This excellent add-on definitely needs updating; on v45 it now causes Contacts to be buggy. Sadly had to disable it ... hope the author or another steps up to bring it up to date.

Needs updating Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

This extension is very useful, but needs updating to work properly with Thunderbird 38.5 and newer.

The problem: The last opened address book is not remembered between sessions. There has been a bug (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1142705) with the contacts sidebar not remembering the last opened address book. The bug is solved in TB 38.5.

@developer: Can you please make Address Book Tab remember the last opened address book between sessions? This would be greatly appreciated.

Works very well and gets the job done. Vital addition to Thunderbird!

Very useful feature added to TB

The idea is good but... Puntuado con 3 de 5 estrellas

IMHO the idea of this extension is very good and should be part of standard TB features. Anyway, IMHO this extension has some faults which should be corrected. In fact I tried to install AddressBookTab (ABT) more than once using it with different versions of TB but the basic problems I found are always the same. In particular, in this moment I'm using version 1.5 of ABT with TB for Windows 24.1.0. FYI, I also installed other extensions, the more relevant from this point of view being "MoreFunctionsForAddressbook" and "ContactTabs". But even if I disable these extensions I still have the following problem. That is, if I click on the ABT icon nearby to the Lightning's ones, the AB which appears in the tab is always the first one of the list, ie the Personal Addressbook (PAB).
Beside, if I click again (after having activated the option to have more than one addressbook in tabs) it always open tabs with duplicates of the PAB. I need to change manually the tabs with other addressbooks. The worst thing however is that if I close TB, next time I open it, yes I have multple tabs but all of them are pointing to the PAB yet, ie ABT does not save my choices between TB session!
What I suggest is to have the icon of ABT with a dropdown menu reporting all the addressbooks (for example I have 6 of them besides the default ones - ie PAB & Collected addresses) with check marks, so one can choose that/those addressbook(s) (s)he wants to have in tabs. Besides, this choiche should be remembered between TB sessions.
Thanks for the attention.

Very Very Good!!! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Esse complemento é tão bom que deveria vir por padrão no Thunderbird.

Great Add-On, should be made part of Thunderbird Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Just one request for Ubuntu Unity users, the File, Edit, View, Tools, Help menus should move to the top panel when Address-book is displayed in a tab-view mode.

FYI – Using Thunderbird 17.0.7 under Ubuntu 12.04.2

icon change Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Extensions is simple and efective. The only thing I would change is that the icon of the button uses the same style as the other buttons and the lightning-tabs buttons.

Broken with TB 17? Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Stopped working for me with v17 of Thunderbird. Can anybody confirm this? Before that it was great.

better together Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

This is a great addon, however, it does somewhat partial job. When opening an individual contact, we still get a new window which limits the navigation. There would be a great way of fixing this, if doubleclicking a contact in AddressBookTab would open a contact in Contact Tabs. If the searchbox of Contact Tabs would be available in AddressBookTab, it would also help sorting out the outstanding issue of TB that you cannot find someone e.g. by phone number. Please consider - talk to each other guys.

Petit conflit Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Français :
J'ai constaté un conflit entre le module et celui de Paolo Kaosmos : MoreFunctionsForAddressBook. Quand ce dernier est activé, le nom des répertoires ne s'affiche plus dans le titre de l'onglet.

I found a conflict between the module and the one of Paolo Kaosmos: MoreFunctionsForAddressBook. When the latter is enabled, adressbooks name no longer appears in the tab title.

addressbooktab cannot read the userchrome.css Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

very excellent addon!
I find one problem: when I open the addressbook in tab, the userchrome.css file doesnot effect addressbook, but if I open addressbook directly(not use addressbooktab addon) ,then the userchrome.css can effect the addressbook well. Can you tell me how to solve this problem? thanks a lot!

Thanks for the Fix Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

Thanks for getting out release 1.5. I works fine with TB 15.0. I hacked 1.4 for TB 14, but was going to have to do it again until I found your update. This is one of my most useful and appreciated add-ons.

Contact Pane does not display contact information in TB15 Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

Just upgraded to TB 15, While add-on does not come up is incompatible, the same bug that occurred in TB14 is present here. And the fix that was proposed by ck55 does not work in TB15. Will you please fix this.

This one of the really useful addons. The Bug with TB14 can be fixed with the workaround by ck55, thanks a lot! To the developer: please update, many people will be thankful!

Thanks ck55! It works....so we can use it for TB14... at the moment.

But there are another "bugs" with two buttons. If you mark a contact, the "Delete" button did not work, it's always Gray. I think there is a problem with "marking" a position. If you mark 2 contacts by holding "Shift" the button become in foreground and works.
Similar it is the same with the button "New Group". After opening the tab it's Gray. Choosing a alternative second address book bring it to foreground. Otherwise you mark 2 contacts - it will bring this button also :-(

Please repair this famous Addon
