my gripe bout the new address book is that the actual email addresses arent clickable so you can compose a new email to that person like ya can in the old address book

You realize that the "new address book" is far from completed?

Specifically, the developer states (in bold), "this is not the finished product ... At this point I'm most concerned with the two new list widgets. I'm much less concerned about missing functionality, the right-hand side (unless it's badly broken), and theme issues. Bugs should be filed to block the tb-new-addrbook meta bug (bug 1705276)."

That might be true in the abstract. But the real world is developers work on multiple projects, there are competing priorities (such as releases to get out the door), there are summer vacations, etc.

But it's also open source - any programmer can contribute the patch.
