Steps to reproduce:

import address books 


Actual results:

wizzard opens screen and somewhere in the deep right corner under it says LDIP, that is supposed to be a choice for the kind of file. That choice is almost hidden. Why not just look for all files? (that is an option already. ) 


Expected results:

move the menu to the top of the  menu. and make "all kind of files" the default.
Summary: import address books → import address books: make "all file types" the default
Component: Untriaged → Address Book
Seems like a good idea.

Thanks, this looks logical, considering in the Import->Addressbooks the user selected "text files (.csv,.ldif,.txt)" and in the next dialog only LDIF is suddenly offered.
