New Default Address Book

I'm on the beta channel and the new address book format with version 95.0b2 is awful. I have one address book for an organization that has chapters across the country. The former address books had a line for Organization. That's where I would put the chapter's name followed by the name and email address for that chapter's president. The new version has no place for Organization but the chapter name shows up for some chapters but not others. When I go to Edit, there's no longer a space for Organization so I can't add the chapter name for those that are missing. Please go back to the former address book format. What was wrong with it/why was it changed? Thank you. John

Thank you! I noticed someone else asked that the Organization option be included in the new Address book. That would be great. John

There's no version yet for 95, but the CardBook add-on has many other contact fields (see picture).

Duh! I've been on the Setting page a gazillion times and I never actually processed the text in the bottom right button. Apologies. Thanks to sfhowes for forcing me to observe what I saw.
