Thunderbird New Card panel has no Cancel or OK buttons

Asked by John Hagerman on 2006-10-23

In Thunderbird installed in Ubuntu 6.06 the New Card panel brought up by the New Card buttons has no Cancel or OK buttons at the bottom, making it impossible to make any additions to any Thunderbird Address Book.
Existing Cards DO have Cancel and OK buttons, but those cards are the result of an import via floppy from an earlier version of Thunderbird running in Windows XP.
Is this a bug, either in Thunderbird or Ubuntu, or a bug only in Ubuntu's version of Thunderbird? Or something else?

New info:
I have discovered a thin red horizontal line in the New Card panel, just above the GUI bottom panel. If I'm very careful with the cursor, this red line appears and functions as the OK button. Not fun, but gets me out of the bind!
I'd still like to see that OK button.
