I want to export from address book in Mac OS X and import to the address book in Thunderbird mail in Ubuntu. I exported the contacts as vCards.vcf and imported it fine but now I just have 36 blank entries in the address book in Thunderbird.

You can use the Address Book Exporter 2.1.2 to export from the Mac OS X address book into a ".txt" file and then import into Thunderbird. Make sure to use the Yahoo option. This method is still not perfect but you can get it to work after a little bit of cut & pasting.
