comment Thunderbird Address Book Error On Start
Installed Evolution but that error never came up. I did reinstall all the packages you suggested, but Thunderbird is still throwing up that message. Evolution seems to be working fine, my contacts lists is populated and no issues so far.

Logged into Thunderbird today and the error has returned with the new Profile :-( Looks like I might just have to migrate to Evolution.

That might have done it! At first I asked the new profile to use the 'default' folder, but the error came back again. So have set up a new profile with new folders and the error has not appeared on start. Thank you for you help.

comment Thunderbird Address Book Error On Start
Both those entries are present, along with the 'Friends' address books. I select the delete option for Personal, it asks if I am sure, I click OK then nothing happens. It has not populated with contacts but that is probably due to the error.

comment How to enable workspace switching selecting app in unity bar?
Maybe try and reset Unity to its default settings then? The easiest way would be to install unity-tweak-tool. After that open a terminal and run the command [unity-tweak-tool --reset-unity]

I misunderstood, my apologies. From my experience, if windows are not maximised sometime they ignore the clicks because there may be a slight overlap between workspaces. Does the switcher function work? (Alt-tab by default). If you can select windows that way it would be a start. Also, do you have CCSM installed? in 'general options -> focus & raise behaviour' the option 'click to focus' should be checked.
