Bug that Deletes All Contacts
Problem reported by kevind - October 28, 2015 at 2:29 PM
From the 14.3 release notes:
  • Fixed: Filtering the messages displayed in the email grid in webmail by doing a search or applying a view filter and then selecting all messages and performing an action on them now correctly operates on the list of displayed messages and not all messages in the folder.
Need to apply this same fix to Contacts section. Search for contacts named Robert, Select All to mark those contacts, Delete, and poof -- ALL your contacts are gone!
It's time to update Contacts so it works in 3 panes like email messages:
Then maybe you could use the same or similar code for both sections.

This bug still exists in 14.4. Hope to get this fixed soon as users can easily delete all contacts. If you can't reproduce, let me know.
This same bug exists in Trusted Senders also:
  1. Go to Settings -> Trusted Senders
  2. Search for 'facebook'
  3. Use the checkbox on top to select all rows
  4. Click Delete
  5. Are you sure you want to delete 2 items? Click Yes.
All 500 of your trusted senders are deleted, not just the 2 facebook ones.

This has been fixed, including your trusted senders bug. :)
If you need a custom build let me know and I can make one.
