Reload backing VCF file after external changes
I have a local address book which is backed by a VCF file. I keep the file in sync using Git.
CardBook doesn't seem to pick up those changes, nor does there seem to be a way to force it to reload from the file. I have to restart Thunderbird.
Please reload new versions of the file at certain points in time, e.g.
- periodically or
- whenever it changes; or
- whenever the Cardbook tab becomes active,
- before opening a contact for editing, and
- the address book is searched, for instance when selecting addressees for a new mail.
A button somewhere to force reload (e.g. the grayed out "Synchronize" in the context menu?) might make sense as well.
