If I open Thunderbird and call up my address book, the address book left hand folder pane will only show the « Mac OS X Address book » I know that my « Personal address book » and « Collected addresses » are there because if, in Terminal, I enter : <…/Applications/Thunderbird.app/Contents/MacOS/thunderbird-bin –addressbook> the address book loads and the folder pane then shows all three. It’s probably that I have to click somewhere that I’ve missed ☺ Can anyone tell me how to get all three books to show in the folder pane?

So several months later I found the answer.


1 Go to Help -> Restart with Add-ons disabled. 2 A window will pop up asking you if you want to disable all add-ons. Say yes because you need the next window. Don't worry, there is another chance to not actually disable your add-ons because... 3 Another window will pop up with an option to reset toolbars. 4 CHECK ONLY THAT OPTION 5 Then click the Restart button.
