Comment 41 for bug 235101

This has been an issue for me for years now. I use the address book as my central repository of contact information and not being able to copy & paste is a HUGE inconvenience. PLEASE, Please, please someone take this on and fix it! I will name my first child in your honor if you do.

Another alternative might be to keep the address books in XML or LDIF format, or any other HUMAN READABLE format, so that I can create my own tools to manage the books. The MORK format is ubiquitous inside Mozilla and I've rarely seen anything more useless. How about moving into the 21st century with XML?
