I have imported txt email addresses into Thunderbird, but all I see are icons for each address. If I click on a specific Icon it will show me the name, email address, etc. I have made certain that Directory Pane and Contact Pane are checked. I haven't figure out how to correct the viewing.

Thanks for any guidance you can give me, Uncle Dewey

Chosen solution

Try different options under View/Show Name As. The names must be in the First, Last and Display fields when you open (double-click) a contact.
