User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9b4pre) Gecko/2008020708 Minefield/3.0b4pre
Build Identifier: 2.0.0.9 (20071031)

There should be an option to see the details of an email address from the adressbook wherever we see an email address. It is very useful when using an LDAP directory to look up phone numbers, location and other details. Currently we have to open the addressbook, look for the entry and open it to see the details.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any email
2.right click on the email address
3.look in the popup menu
Actual Results:  
No option to see details in the address book

Expected Results:  
An option to see details in address book (a double click would be even better)

Useful when you have other details in your addressbook like phone numbers (especially true for LDAP addressbook)
