Printing sorted contact lists in ThunderBird
ThunderBird doesn't provide many options for printing contact lists. To get more flexibility you need to export data into a CSV file and then print from within a spreadsheet program.
There's a handy program called... MoreFunctionsForAddressBook that lets you do this.
The plugin isn't part of ThunderBird's add-on site so you will need to download the XPI file and manually install it. The file is at the very bottom of the main add-on page. To install the add-on into ThunderBird you will first need to go to the add-ons window. Then, if you can find the little cog icon next to the search box, you can choose an option to install an add-on from a file.
