This is a parity bug, see bug 78933, bug 83103, and bug 83100.
the windows version of mozilla will now support Outlook addressbooks via MAPI.

Support for mac addressbooks should be implementable via AppleScript.  The 
dictionaries of Outlook Express, Entourage and Outlook are apparently quite

was the platform parity (pp) keyword left off for a reason here?

yes, i can't add keywords until after i file :-( it's a bugzilla bug.  
Hopefully it'll be fixed by 2.16 (2.14 is about to roll out, is now betaing 2.14). Similarly i can't mark 
depends/blocks.  I've picked a depends but i don't really understand the 
AddressBook dependency tree, so feel free to make whatever modifications you 
feel are correct (privs granted).
Depends on: 78933

Since there is a platform wide address book in OS X, should this bug be changed
to "Support Apple Address Book"? I don't see a point in supporting
Outlook/Entourage abooks, since they will switch to the platform address book
sooner or later.

since i filed this bug as a bug about Microsoft's mail app, which is not apple's
address book, no i don't want it randomly morphing to mean apple's address book.
And no, i shouldn't have to go buy Entourage 2006 just so that mozilla can use
my Entourage address book that I built in 2001.

Might I suggest editing the summary to something like: "Support Microsoft's Email Programs' Address Books Using AppleScript" for clarity?

I'm sure you can see that the current arrangement causes some confusion...
