  1. integrate Contacts, Address Book, Firefox

    The information in Contacts is nice, but I want to associate it with Address Book items that I can edit. And I should be able to update this uber-Address Book from within Firefox.

    • Integrate Google Calendar with Thunderbird and Lightning

      Get a way to integrate Google Calendar with Mozilla Thunderbird's addon-- Lightning (Or better yet, include the calendar function to begin with) so that the Mozilla interface is used, through Google's services.

      • Better duplicate management

        It would be nice to have the ability to join duplicate contacts. I have contacts with slightly different names on different services.

        • Thunderbird Sync extension

          Mozilla Corporation produced FF Sync extension.

          Mozilla Messaging created TB Contact add-on
          This add-on seems great to aggregate contacts from webservices into TB.
          I accept to merge contact from webservices to my desktop.
          In the other hand, I don't want to "give" my contacts address book to webservices like Google or Facebook. From a privacy stand of point it is too valuable.

          I wish Momo develop a TB Sync feature.
          Data would be stored on a server fully encrypted.
          I can find on any PC, phone (Android, Iphone,...) my valuable data:
          - Address Book
          - Calendar
          - ....

          So far…

          • Better message pane and thread view, make it better than Gmail

            There's an addon called Gmail Conversation View that tries to make threads look better, but it can be so much more.

            1. Combine lots of emails within a conversation in a stack to save vertical space
            2. Allow quick reply in the conversation
            3. Mark message as read when hovered
            4. Integrate with Contacts - photos, twitter updates etc. (like Raindrop?)
            5. Integrate with Lightning to convert emails to tasks/events
            6. Have a status icon next to each sender email (like Outlook 2010) to indicate IM presence

            I know it's too dreamy, I just hope some of this comes in…

                  • Enable syncing your TB adressbook over multiple computers

                    I'm using TB on multiple computers (desktop netbook). Contacts should enable syncing the local adressbooks on these computers (like FF Sunc?)

                    • Associate multiple email to a single contact

                      Many people have multiple email (Hotmail, Gmail, at Work, etc.). Every different email create a new instance in the contact list. It could be great to associate many email to a single contact and define which one is preferred by default, which one is for work, etc.

                        • Integrate Identi.ca and RSS

                          Hi,

                          It would be good to integrate Identi.ca (the "twitter" free).

                          Integrate RSS Feeds would be good too.
                          For example: I see a url which i like. I can share it by sending a message on my own rss feed from the F1 extension.

                          I think to http://www.xfruits.com/ which is a good website concept for RSS feeds.

                          Just a black point: Using Javascript. Not the top for security i think...

                          Thank you.

                                  • OpenSearch should open in default browser, not Thunderbird

                                    According to the description of the OpenSearch addon, "Thunderbird will open a new tab containing the search results". I don't want to do web browsing in a mail client, I want to do it in my default browser (namely Firefox). I'd like to see OpenSearch opening search results in the default browser, rather than in Thunderbird. Ideally, I'd like to see that as the default behavior.

                                    I *do* really like the idea of typing in a search in the search box and having the option of searching the web; I just want it to go open a tab in Firefox.
