      Thunderbird 78.3.2 (32-bit)
      CardBook 52.4

      CardBook, after syncing a contact from NextCloud Contacts, appears to convert the vCard entries as shown below, subsequently syncing those changes back to NextCloud, screwing up the contacts in the process. (ignore line wrap in this post, vCard has 75 octet line length limit and wrapping rules which are not followed when displayed in this forum)

      ADR;PREF=10;TYPE=OTHER:;;Unit 2\, 83 Bream Street;Coogee;New South Wales;20
      34;Australia
      converts to
      ITEM1.ADR;TYPE=PREF:;;Unit 2\, 83 Bream Street;Coogee;New South Wales;2034;
      Australia
      ITEM1.X-ABLABEL:OTHER

      and

      EMAIL;PREF=20;TYPE=OTHER:xxxxxx@xxxxxxx-xxxxx.info
      TEL;PREF=1;TYPE=CELL;VALUE=UNKNOWN:+61 xxx xxx xxx
      converts to
      EMAIL;TYPE=PREF;TYPE=OTHER:xxxxxx@xxxxxxx-xxxxx.info
      TEL;TYPE=PREF;TYPE=CELL:+61 xxx xxx xxx

      The end result being a loss of preferred order, as indicated by the PREF entry whose value defaults to 1 or may be 1..100

      Technically conversion of ADR to ITEM1 should result in the same UI experience but IMHO, the conversion should not happen.
