how do i change my default addressbook

Have used thunderbird for years and now have recently updated version 38.2.0 installed on linux mint (latest version as well). All available updates done. For some reason now when I am composing a message the addressbook which pops up as the default is "All Address Books", which lists each and every one of my contacts (very many of them). I was using "Personal Address Book" before with relatively few of my normal contacts and I still have preferences set for all new contacts to go into "Collected Addresses". The old way is far more efficient for me. Is there a way to change "All Address Books" to "Personal Address Book" as my default addressbook? Many thanks.
