default address book for contacts sidebar in Thunderbird 38 (bug 1142705)

Posted

Thunderbird 38.0.1 Windows 7.1 Click on "Write". Contacts side bar opens with "All Address Books" as default. It used to default to the LAST USED Address Book. [I've only noticed this new behavior in the last few days.] No matter which address book I select, Write now always opens with "All Address Books". ["All Address Books" displays a combined list of ALL the contacts in ALL the address books]. How do it get it to default to the 'last used' address book please?

Is this address book issue ever going to be fixed? It's going on 9 months now.

I agree with jondough. Just now I installed TB 38.4 on my PC, but the problem is still there. With consideration to all "volunteers" and "holiday" reasons : the initial promise was to have this fixed in TB 38.2. Who do we have to pamper to get this fixed before the end of this year?
