User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.12) Gecko/20101026 Firefox/3.6.12 ImageShackToolbar/5.2.4 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: 3.1.6

I have 3 instances of Thunderbird, 2 in XP, 1 in Win 7, but I am forced to use 1 addressbook as the master (other 2 as the slaves, by suggestion of the xpi author). I use an extension (see URL above, for a description. I have tried to use an IMAP folder Contacts using it, but it doesn't work & doesn't provide enough parameters for me to get to the contacts folder OR it gets to the folder, & the security settings are wrong (I've checked everything I can & find nothing wrong). What happens with the current setup is on the 2 "slaves", an address entered is destroyed by the master copy from the other machine. I would like to add (or subtract) an address (or list) on any 1 of the 3 machines! Thanks for at least considering this change!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set a new address or address list on 1 of the "slave" machines.
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
Address or list destroyed eventually (time is determined by extension options setting.

Expected Results:  
Enter or delete new address or list on any one of the 3; results reflected on other 2.
Sorry, but we do not handle add-on issues here, you should report the issue directly to the add-on author. Therefore marking this as invalid.

If you're asking for synchronisation between Thunderbird instances then there are other bugs that cover that already.

No, I was not attacking the "add-on issues"; I understand that that is to be handled by their respective authors. If there are "other bugs that cover that already," I would wish to be put on the notify list for them? I tried a search for the 2 categories, but didn't see any summaries that even roughly corresponded with my inquiry.
