It to be very good ad-on, however, since mid of February it does not synchronise any more.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (56.7). 

may you contact me by email : cardbook (at) cardbook.icu

Edit : try to recreate your Google address book into CardBook (right click on your current address book, "New Address Book", then second entry "Remote", then second entry "Google", then enter your email address, Click on validate, click OK to the two consent screens, then Next many times... once it's done, remove your old CardBook address book...

--- update ---
Got immediate response from the developer on this review withe explanation about my errors.
Support can be found at: https://cardbook.icu/forum/ mentioned here (I'm sorry I overlooked that one going straight tho the start page https://gitlab.com/CardBook/CardBook mentioned in the add-on in Thunderbird itself).
So based on the response and support found at the forum I give it a big plus now!

--- Original review ---
Looks nice but makes a mess of all my contacts, removes birthdays and shows Thunderbird address books double (I don't know why). Since I can find no support or help here nor on https://gitlab.com/CardBook/CardBook I tried the following to resolve this:
1) Removed the CardBook add-on from thunderbird;
2) Restarted thunderbird;
3) Deleted all my Google contacts online;
4) Deleted al my contacts in Thunderbird;
5) Reimported my thunderbird contacts and address books;
6) reinstalled this add-on, hoping it will ask for my address books again.

Now guess what?
* All my contacts and address books still show double in CardBook in Thunderbird! No not in the address book of Thunderbird itself only in CardBook.
* And Thunderbird now locks up because it asks if I want to keep or delete a contact because it is not in Google anymore. Which IS a nice feature wasn't is so that CardBook is asking me the same question for EVERY SINGLE contact and not for the whole bunch of - in my case - 5145 contacts at once!

So with no explanation while installing, no support page available, removing birthdays from my calendar, no way to handle a large quantity of contacts and messing contacts and address books up in a undefinable way this add-on gets a zero for now.

I hope it will be better and more clear in the future because I would still like to use it after all... Thanks!

to let you know : all of this stuff is caused by Google servers... when you create a new event, a new contact or a new category with a unique ID, Google accepts these new objects then computes on them and attributes them a new fresh id... So when you sync again, all of these appear to new on the server and the ones you created are considered to be deleted.... this is not easy to handle... with Carddav servers, Apple, etc... you don't have such a mess...

What you have to do is only recreate a new Google address book in CardBook (And delete the old one in CardBook). Don't delete contacts directly. If this does not solve your issue, email me directly to cardbook (at) cardbook.icu

For the birthdays, everytime you change the event name, CardBook will create new events (as IDs are not reliable, CardBook search for names)...

Picked up all my Google contacts. A recent update has also added Categories though it has not added all of them from my account...

Wenn sich die Anzeige-Einstellung mal für die alle Adressbücher mit einem Klick auf "nachmane, Vorname" umstellen lässt gibt es 4 Sterne. Bisher führen sämtliche Versuche ins Nirvan.

yes for sure it's possible, add the column "Name" in the contacts view, remove the column "Display Name", then in CardBook preferences, second tab, in the "Show Name As" paragraph, you may choose the format of the column "Name"

Ja, es ist sicher möglich, fügen Sie die Spalte "Name" in der Kontaktansicht hinzu, entfernen Sie die Spalte "Anzeigename". Wählen Sie dann in den CardBook-Einstellungen auf der zweiten Registerkarte im Abschnitt "Name anzeigen als" das Format der Spalte aus "Name"

I can confirm that Google sync resumes to work again if I set general.useragent.compatMode.firefox to false (= the default - I had set it to true before).

thanks a lot for the trick !

Merci donc ce n'est plus une histoire de démarrage...
Mais limite à combien ? Pour combien de temps ?
Cela ne semlble pas très maîtrisé ni très fiable tout ça ;-)
Bon je pense que j'ai trouvé une autre solution...
Bonne journée

je n'ai aucune idée d’où ça bloque : j'ai essaye sur trois PCs différents avec différentes adresses email et tout fonctionne parfaitement. Vos contacts doivent être toujours présent après redémarrage et votre synchronisation des contacts toujours valable même si la synchronisation des labels dans Google ne fonctionne pas... vous pouvez me contacter à cette adresse : cardbook (at) cardbook.icu

Edit : trouvé, solution la : https://gitlab.com/CardBook/CardBook/-/issues/1172#note_512218318

Great addon until ver 55.5. All address books disappeared. Restored Thunderbird. Installed ver 55.6 with same nasty results. Again, restored Tbird. Last working version is 55.2.

Update: Restarting Tbird did the trick. Thanks for the quick response.

Same here for me: After yesterday's update the Google-Sync is broken. Although in my google-account Cardbook has access to my contacts - Thunderbird says that "the app is blocked". Please fix that, thank you very much!

retry a bit later... for me it works on different PC and different email account....

This is a great indispensable app.
But today, after the update, he was unable to synchronize contacts with Google. Google has blocked access to the address book.
Please fix the add-on. Thank you for your work.

p.s. Thanks for support. Problem resolved. (Set general.useragent.compatMode.firefox to false = the default - I had set it to true before).

This looks really great and I would love to use it. But... How long before changes to Thunderbird cause it to stop working and leave my address book stuck in limbo.

Been burnt more than once by Mozilla before... In my mind extensions/addins are a dead technology.

Excellent address book for Thunderbird. I use it to sync Thunderbird with my Nextcloud server on all my computers. It would be great if this extension replaced the current Thunderbird address book. The support for the CardBook extension by the developer is also very good.

Is not possible to choose "work mobile" and is needed to make some change in the contact other than the phone, this definition is lost

it depends of your server... may you open a bug here : https://gitlab.com/CardBook/CardBook/-/issues describing how you proceed...

Pour le formatage des adresses :
La localité dans le champs adresse bureau (work) Châteaubriant se transforme en Ch��teaubriant.

J'ai pas testé sur la totalité des champs de l'adresse.
