Is there a way to include the "Notes" field in the "Advanced Address Book Search" ?

Hi,

I keep much information in the "Notes" field of TB's Address Book; but TB's Advanced Address Book Search does not include the "Notes" field in its drop-down menu:

Thunderbird -> Address Book -> Advanced Address Book Search -> Display Name -> Drop Down menu -> many fields EXCEPT for the "Notes" field.

In the past, certain Add-Ons allowed to search the "Notes" field, but those add-ons have been either discontinued or no longer working with my Thunderbird version 68.10.0 (64-bit, Linux).

Is there a way to include the "Notes" field in the "Advanced Address Book Search" ?

Many thanks Chris

If you search address books a lot, try Card Book, which searches the Notes field of Card Book contacts, as well as many other fields.
