    Brilliant. Seems to work! Moved a contact to a different address book, synced them both up to my Nextcloud server, and the contact moved without changing the REV date anywhere.
    As always, impressed by the speed of response.

    Yes, that seems to make it a bit faster. However I’d prefer to keep that turned on, as I have a few contacts in other address books that I don’t really want in my Cardbook / DAV addressbook.

    I have 4 other address books with a total of around 1000 contacts. I just pruned 800 contacts out of one address book, so I brought it down from 1800 to 1000, and there was no difference in speed. Is this expected? Can I optimize the sqlite databases to make a difference?

    Hmmm. So … when I replied on 1st August, unchecking the “Show only Display Name” setting fixed the problem of slow response in my inbox.

    However, it seems an update since then (4th Aug was the latest one my installation reports) has re-activated the problem. Now the inbox is sluggish even with the “Show only Display Name” option unchecked. I’ve tried it with the option checked and unchecked and there is now no difference.
    Disabling Cardbook Add-on and restarting Thunderbird stops the sluggish behaviour. Any more suggestions?

    I can confirm that I was experiencing the same problem for the last few days. I too narrowed it down to Cardbook after selectively disabling the AddOns one by one.
    I can also confirm the fix above in Thunderbird Preferences > Display works.
    Running on Linux Mint 18 / Ubuntu 16 for the record.

    Oh, great! I guess my only suggestion in that case, would be to rename the field so that it was more obvious, for dumb people like me! Rev Date?
    🙂
