Importing my address book from Eudora, brought up just "Eudora Nicknames", all other groups created by myself like "Friends", "Relatives", "Clients", etc. where ignored.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
3.Address Books
Actual Results:  
Only the main NickNames (contacts) (Eudora NickNames) where imported.

Expected Results:  
All NickNames should have been imported. I mentioned some examples above.

MY problem is that I recently installed Win7Pro(64bit).  I used PCmover to get over some of my stuff from WinXP_Pro_sp3(32bit).  I installed Thunderbird v.3.0.2 and it successfully imported all my mail folders and mail and accounts and settings, BUT not my address book.  When I try Tools|Import|Address Books|Next|Outlook Express|Next, I get "No address books were found to import." beneath "Addresses successfully imported from Outlook Express." !!!  
No addresses were actually imported, and I can find no way to force T-bird to do so, nor is there an option to "Browse..." to show T-bird where the '.wab' file is!

Problem confirmed here: sub-address books from Eudora are not imported. 

I am still using Eudora (the last version) and trying Thunderbird now and then to see if it could work. Version 17.0.7 installed. One improvement: program not forced into C:. Data still in C: (so not improved, see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=394936)

Importing mail and addresses is somewhat improved, but now the sub-address books are not imported thought data are available, see my analysis https://getsatisfaction.com/mozilla_messaging/topics/eudora_address_books_importing_problems
Topic 2900985 is dealing with another matter (wrong address imports)

Importing from Eudora was removed from Thunderbird in bug 1243498.
Please see http://kb.mozillazine.org/Importing_from_Eudora_-_Thunderbird on how you can still import from Eudora if you need that.
