Build: 2001091808, Mac OS 9.1 To reproduce: 1. Make sure your screen resolution is larger than 640*480. 2. Open the Address Book. 3. In the Sidebar, click the `Tabs' button, and choose `Customize Sidebar...'. 4. In the `Available Tabs' field of the `Customize Sidebar' window-that-thinks-it's-a-dialog, choose `Address Book'. 5. Click `Add', then click `OK'. 6. Back in the Address Book, click on the Address Book Sidebar tab. 7. Laugh manically at the absurdity of it all. What should happen: * If the Sidebar exists in the Address Book at all, it should be off by default. Rationale: * The Address Book window, unlike a browser or mail window, is one users are most likely to have open temporarily -- to edit or retrieve addresses before they return to their e-mail or Web browsing. It doesn't have the kind of sustained use which is used to excuse the existence of the sidebar in Navigator or mail/news. * It is slightly useful to have an Address Book tab in the Sidebar -- addresses can be dragged from the sidebar tab into a bug report, for example. The opposite is not true, however; the Address Book is not a Web browser, and there is practically nothing which the Sidebar can do which would make the Address Book more useful.
