Stopping the contacts list from resorting and starting from the to

    While the search feature is really neat, it is really a pain when you are
    editing and deleting a large addressbook to get rid of duplicates.

    The moment you delete a way a contact, the list resorts and goes back to the
    first contact in alphabetical order even if you are 3/4 way through your list.

    To go back to the same spot where you deleted the contact from, you would
    have to use the scroll bar and go to the exact spot again

    It would be great to separate the contact search bar function and just
    jumping to a particular spot in the contact list.

    e.g. if i wanted to find contacts with the word sofia in it. I type it in
    the search bar and a list of all contact with the word sofia come out.

    if i wanted to go to part of my addressbook where sofia starts
    alphabetically. I put the cursor on the contacts list instead of the search
    bar and type S-O-F...and i should be there almost.

    Hope the team can consider such a feature in the next build

    Good job.
