what address book? An address book is usually associated with an e-mail or messenger program, not with the OS.
So what e-mail or messenger software have you used in your previous system?

Hi DocCPU,
Yes, that was a rather misguided question!
The address book is associated with my Mozilla/Thunderbird Mail/News program and the reason for mentioning Ubuntu was the possibility that it has some influence on the location.
Apart from all that the question remains---where is it located?
Thanks Cliff

Hi,

The thunderbird address book is located in the file ~/.thunderbird/<some random characters>/abook.mab
