Hello @ll,
when I try to use Thunderbird's/Icedove's address book as the 
address data source, I get the error message in the subject ... :(

How to reproduce:

1. Go to "File – Wizards – Address Data Source..."
2. Select "Thunderbird/Icedove"
3. Press the Enter key

You will get the error message
The file $filename$ could not be loaded.

... :( Is this intended, or is it a bug? I would expect a more 
useful error message á la "I cannot find any installation of 
Thunderbird/Icedove" or "The directory ~/.mozilla/thunderbird" is 
missing. Are you sure, you have Thunderbird/Icedove installed on 
your system?" or something like that ... ;) When I use the 
Germanophone UI, I get the message

Die Datei $filename$ konnte nicht geladen werden.

, where "$filename" is not translated ... :(

Discovered with
LO: Version: Build-ID: 
3d4fc3d9dbf8f4c0aeb61498a81f91c5b7922f13 (parallel installed, 
following the instructions from 
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel) with 
Germanophone lang- as well as helppack
OS: Debian Testing i686

Thanks for any answer
