Very nice. However, each one of them applies only to one address book. It would be great if there's a function to backup ALL address books. And the counterpart function, restore, could recreate non-existant address books if needed. Another problem with import/export is that when one imports an ldif file whose name is different from "Personal Address Book", a new address book is created. For some, this might be a good point, but for others, this might be a hassle. For the restore function, more considerations have to be taken. For example, what to do if an entry exists already? Maybe Thunderbird could popup a window to show both entries and let the user choose between them. Reproducible: Always
RFE isn't necessary, enhancement severity is good enough, please don't use RFE.
OK. But I used RFE because in other wishes that I made (severity is enhancement too), people always corrected my titles and added "RFE". That's why I added the word RFE.
(In reply to comment #1) > workaround - try http://kb.mozillazine.org/MozBackup aka > http://mozbackup.jasnapaka.com/ I've just tried this MozBackup (oh yeah, more than 4 years after its suggestion! :D) Indeed, it could backup all address books and restore them (though I haven't checked if it backup and restore every attribute). Very well done. However, for users on platforms other than Windows, they're less lucky. So this enhancement request should be maintained here.
