Seeing "no directory for..." errors in error console

more options

Running latest 102.5.1 Tbird. Seeing errors in error console, repeated many times: NS_ERROR_FAILURE: No directory for uri=moz-abmdbdirectory://abook.mab 2 AddrBookManager.jsm:266 NS_ERROR_FAILURE: No directory for uri=moz-abmdbdirectory://impab.mab AddrBookManager.jsm:266 NS_ERROR_FAILURE: No directory for uri=moz-abmdbdirectory://history.mab AddrBookManager.jsm:266

Is this benign or do I need to do something?

Are you using a current version, or an addon that might mess with address books?

Thunderbird switched from the use of MAB files some time ago now. (multiple releases)

Yes, most current version on MacOS 13.0.1 I'll check the addons. Good point.

Disabled all (3) add-on extensions. No change. Since it doesn't seem to be causing any real problems (I was just curious why I was seeing this over and over again in the error console), I guess I'll try to not worry about it.
