When pressing "OK" in the "New card" window, nothing happens. Steps to reproduce with rc1, winxp: 1. Start mozilla, 2. go to "mail & newsgroups", 3. click "Compose" in toolbar, 4. click "Address" in toolbar, 5. click "New...", 6. enter first name "foo", 7. enter last name "bar", 8. enter email "email@example.com", 9. click "OK" 10. nothing happens :)
Please specify what build you are using (is it a Mozilla nightly build, a Mozilla Milestone build)?
I'm using mozilla 1.0 RC 1
I found the problem: you have to fill in the "Add to:" drop down in the "New Card" dialog (it is empty by default) to solve the problem. As long as the dropdown is empty, clicking "OK" has no effect. A good solution would be selecting "Personal Address Book" by default. If you don't want to do this, a nice error message would be ok, too ("please select an address book first"). BTW: Just tested it with Mozilla 1.0 RC2 (that's when I found out that there is an "Add to:" dropdown I didn't notice before).

firstname.lastname@example.org: I'm having the same problem as well. When I first migrated from Netscape 4.79 I had no problems, now (a few weeks later), when I press the "new card" button, I get a popup with "add to:" and a pull-down list of address books to add to. I choose an address book and press OK, and it just returns silently, no error, no dialog.
Since I submitted this bug, I imported some addresses which were exported from another Mozilla session. Since I've done that, adding new address to my address book using the "new card" button works fine.
I've verified this problem in version 1.3 running on windows 2000 and 98. But in my case, it happens only when I use the pt-br (Brazilian portuguese) language pack. When I don't use this language pack it works ok. Any idea if this problem is only in the language pack?
WFM on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win 9x 4.90; en-US; rv:1.8a6) Gecko/20041231. The Add to drop down now defaults to Personal Address Book (I believe it was changed at some stage), therefore the reported error sequence now works fine. Leaving open until someone can test on Windows XP.
works fine now (tested with mozilla 1.7.3 on Windows XP)
Re-tests and reporter have now shown that this bug is ok, closing as Works For Me. Please re-open with reasons why if you think this bug should still be open.
verified wfm with build 2005-07-10-05, Windows XP.
