Thunderbird default address book

Hey Thunderbird users!

I’d like to set my carddav address book as the default AB to add new contacts to, but it doesn’t seem to be possible. Regardless of the settings I tried, clicking the star always adds contacts to “Personal Address Book” - and I have to click again to edit / move them to the right place.

Thunderbird_add_address

Anyone know a workaround to this?

If not I encourage you to vote for this enhancement request:

Thanks.
