initial version

You can (still?) use the Thunderbird address book as a data source in the mail merge wizard or other purposes, although you may have to install a later version (4.1.4 is current at the time of writing, and I've successfully used a Thunderbird address book with the Mail Merge Wizard on Windows 7 with LibreOffice 4.1.4.2).

When you create a Base database, the LibreOffice Database Wizard asks what you want to do. Choose Connect to an existing database and pick Thunderbird/Icedove Address Book from the dropdown list. Make sure you register the database, so that it shows up in the list of data sources when you run the Mail Merge Wizard in Writer.
