It appears that Google did a major release, and the contact import has received a major upgrade. In the past, you could only import "Name, Email, Notes", but now, (I saw this yesterday), you can:
1. Do a full import of an Outlook CSV.
2. Do a full import of Thunderbird CSV, but change the "Display Name" header to "Name".
Sorry Thunderbird folks!! You get short-changed again, BUT, I imagine this is a bug, and will be fixed shortly.
BTW, you will know if you forgot to change "Display Name" to "Name", as all of your contacts will be listed as "(Unnamed Contact)", (even though "Display Name" is correctly imported, and viewed when clicking on the contact). If this happens, delete all of your problem contacts, change the column header, and everything will import correctly.
With a little side of applesauce...
