Build Identifier: ThunderBird v1.5.0.4 (latest, updated today)

Not so much a bug, but more of a usability comment:

Consider reordering the contact information fields in the address book to flow better.

For example, from:
- work
- home
- fax
- pager
- mobile

to:

- work
- fax
- mobile
- home
- pager

Consider allowing user re-ordering/customization of fields.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load Thunderbird
2. Click Address Book
3. Click New Card
4. Enter contact numbers
5. Agree with me and change ordering.  :)

Bryan, with our moving to multi-valued fields, do you think they would effectively resolve this bug?
Yes, by the fact that we wouldn't have to define these fields up front would mean that the ordering would be whatever order they were entered in.  Or I suppose we could offer some reordering ability in the popup UI if we felt it  necessary.
