Thunderbird Address books used to be available in OOo on Mac OSX as a source for defining the AddressBook to be used in Writer.
This functionality is no longer available, and was never released in any of the LibO versions to date.
NeoOffice currently provides access to :
Mozilla Address Book
Thunderbird Address Book
LDAP Address Book
Mac OSX Address Book
LibreOffice 3.4 only has :
Mac OSX Address Book
Why the difference ? Why shun the availabilities that other platforms have ?
I consider this a regression. If one takes LDAP alone, MacOSX server provides LDAP services out of the box. This now means that LibreOffice does not offer the capability to define an LDAP datasource in Writer for the AddressBook that Mac OS sysadmins will have setup on their networks.
The same applies for Thunderbird/Mozilla address books. Thunderbird must be the most frequently used mail application outside of Mail.app on the Mac platform.
This is inherited, see
and search for 91209 in the source.
This may be out of date now, try re-enabling it in connectivity, and in
scp2, for MacOSX and report back if it works.
Excellent, thanks Caolan. Will take a look.

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.

@ Alex Thurgood
this is actually a Base problem, and would need somebody with a Mac to investigate; the internal Mozilla was updated since this address book support
was disabled, perhaps it would work today?

As far as I know, the official builds do not include either LDAP or Mozilla/TB address book support, so perhaps Norbert might like to reconsider providing a build with them in ? However, I will check later on today with a 3.6 RC.
Confirming that there is neither LDAP nor MozTB address book support in the latest Mac OSX daily builds.
Ldap is still not present in 4.2.4 but Thunderbird/Icedove is present
The only one missing today 17/09/2014 is LDAP.
Alex: on pc Debian x86-64 with 4.3.2 Debian package, I don't have LDAP now. I don't know if it's normal but, if it is, could we consider this bug as WFM now?
Stephan: I noticed this commit http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=0b21dd2593fae41ee430717d7d65e2cfca25b8e9, can/should we enable LDAP on MacOs?
Adding self to CC if not already on
As also mentioned in comment 1, this was already the case in 3.3.0, hence not a regression with respect to LibreOffice
-> Version: Inherited from OOo
-> Removed Keywords: regression and Whiteboard: bibisected35 bibisected35older
Ok, so let's close this as wfm
