    I tried to recreate my address book but ran into a problem.  I selected remote as the location, Google as the type, put in my email address and clicked on Validate.  The usual Google screen came up but the Allow button was grayed out.  I tried several times and got the same thing.  Any idea what might be the problem?

    My email(xxx) and phone(xxx) columns are ok now.  I am still have no countries for non-US contacts or states for US contacts.  I set my read-only option and did a sync before checking.

    I just noticed that I also lost the State in all my addresses for my US contacts.  I also lost the Country for my non-US contacts.

    I just installed 58.6.  I am having a problem.  The columns “emails” and “phones” are showing the right info, but “emails (home)”, “emails (work)”, “phones (home)”, and “phones (work)” are empty.  I didn’t check any other so they may have problems as well.

    Also, now every first email address, phone #, and address is flagged (with the blue star) as the preferred one even if there is only one.  Is this intended?

    For testing is there a way to only sync from Gmail to TB and not from TB to Gmail?  This was possible in the old extension I used gContactSync, but I don’t see how to do this in Cardbook.  I don’t want to damage my Gmail contacts in case there is a bug of some kind.

    Also, when I try to insert an image now all I get is a little square.  Am I don’t something wrong?  What should I put in the Source input field?

    Thanks,

    Bill

    OK… I’ll hold off for now.

    Before you replied I had created a contact in Google and synced it to Cardbook and then changed it in Cardbook and synced it to Google and all seemed to work fine.  I had not created a new address book in Cardbook.

    Any idea why those 9 contacts appeared as local changes immediately after installing the test version?  I looked in the log and found the names of the 9 contacts, but they didn’t look changed to me in the address book.

    As for the 2nd item.  I forgot I have it set to sync on Thunderbird startup so that is why it synced I’m sure.  I usually turn this off when testing a new version, but I forgot.

    First of all, thank you so much for working on this.  I really appreciate it.

    I have a couple of questions

    I did a sync with Google and then downloaded and installed the test version.  I then closed and reopened Thunderbird.  When I opened Cardbook it immediately said that 9 contacts had local changes.  I had not done any changes.  Any idea what these changes might be?  Is there anyway I can find out what the changes were?

    Then without my doing anything in Cardbook the 9 items were synced with Google so now it no longer shows  that 9 contacts had local changes.  I do not have it set to sync after changes… I only do it manually.  Why did it sync?

    In the description of this version you say “only new Google address book are affected “.  What do you mean by this?  I’ve had my Google address book for years.  Do you mean I have to delete my address book in Cardbook and start over?  No problem… I just want to be sure.

    Thanks,

    Bill

    I am again getting the multiple Cardbook options in the drop down for the filter actions.  I’ve not been able to pin down when they appear so I can’t cause it to happen.  I’m not sure if the problem was re-introduced in 58.3 or if it wasn’t really fixed in 58.1.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    He moved it so now the mention of it going away is here.

    In case it is of any benefit, this is where I saw that it is going away.

    I just installed 58.1 and that seems to have fixed the problem.  I did have to restart Thunderbird in order for the fix to take effect.

    Thanks again!

    Sorry, I guess I am not understanding something.  I see why there are “Add To to Cardbook”, “Add Cc to Cardbook”, etc.

    But why do I have “Add To to Cardbook” 7 times?  Same for the others.

    I would have expected to have 10 entries for Cardbook on that drop down list not 70.

    Thanks for the quick reply.  I will save this information just in case.  Good to know there is another way to get back my contacts.

    Thanks!
