You can bring up Mozilla's or Thunderbird's Address Book using the command-line switch "-addressbook" [1].

For example, on Windows:

C:\Program Files\Mozilla\mozilla.exe -addressbook
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe -addressbook

And on Mac OS X:

/Applications/Mozilla.app/Contents/MacOS/mozilla -ProfileManager
/Applications/Thunderbird.app/Contents/MacOS/thunderbird -ProfileManager

You can run these commands in whatever command-line interface your have on your OS (Command Prompt on Windows, Terminal on Mac OS X, et cetera).
