Running the latest version of Thunderbird on the latest Windows 10, and still unable to edit the address book. Cannot add names to existing groups. (I CAN delete from groups). Cannot delete names from Collected Addresses list. There are hundreds of duplicate entries in that list.
I tried exporting LDIF files and a CSV file, exiting TB, renaming abook.sqlite to abook.sqlite.bak, restarting TB, and importing. (I did the CSV file to delete duplicate entries, since LDIF seems to keep them.) On restarting TB, the old address entries were still there. I successfully imported the CSV file and then had two Collected Address lists. Could not delete from the old list and could not delete the list itself, so I couldn't cut&paste from old to new. Gave up and restored the abook.sqlite file.
Apologies, I know similar issues have cropped up but I couldn't find anything directly relevant. I think Mozilla should put out a script to fix this; it seems that many people are encountering similar problems, probably from the sqlite changeover, and it's pretty tough to fix. (I have a degree in Computer Science from UC Berkeley, but most of your users are far less equipped for fixing this stuff. My wife, for instance!)
