    tbjrd with contact-sidebar v. 0.7.1-not installable on suse linux12.3

    hi there good day dear linux- experts.

    i am running opensue 12.3 and firefox 21
    with the following

    thunderbird version: v.17.0.6, released: May 14, 2013
    enigmail 1.6 a1 pre

    just wanted to install contacts_sidebar - see this
    it gave me a file that downloaded . this one

    Contacts Sidebar 0.7.1
    developed by Jeroen Peters

    this integrates a contacts-Sidebar in the main windiow of Thunderbird

    well - there more than one way to install:

    a. by downloading and clicking it - then the firefox-addon-programme starts
    by starting the thunderbird - addon programme - with that i can do

    b 1 a search in the world of thunderbird addons
    b 1 b try a installation

    well whtat is interesting - if i choose the way a.

    i got the report; tis addon is uninstallable - since it is not (!!) compatible with FireFox 21.
    what can i do now

    i do not understand what is going on here.

    btw - if look at the tbird addon-programme i see that i have asystem that is called

    Über dieses Add-on
    Contacts Sidebar supports many locales: en-US, bg-BG, cs-CZ, de-DE, el-GR, es-ES, fr-FR, hu-HU, it-IT, ja-JP, pl-PL, pt-BR, pt-PT, ru-RU, zh-TW.
    Many thanks to all. Contacts Sidebar displays all available address books in a sidebar in the 3-pane-window of Thunderbird. It makes all your contacts easy accessible from the main window to quickly write messages, or to edit the properties of a contact card.
    As of version 0.6, the Contacts Sidebar also replaces the sidebar in the compose window. The sidebar in Thunderbirds main window and the sidebar in the compose window have the same context menu and share the same features.


    well this is really not encouraging - what can i do now

    Not available for Thunderbird 17.0.6. Works with Thunderbird 1.5b - 3.0a1

    Contacts Sidebar :: Add-ons for Thunderbird does not work with the version 17.0.6

    do you have any idea? is there any way i can use contacts sidebar?
    btw: should i downgrade the thunderbird to any older version!?

    look forward to hear from you
