Thank you for the report.
Indeed, I saw this problem when trying to dial a number containing an "*" character. Commit 29a2415 is a first try to handle this situation (I have tested it for google contacts, but not for thunderbird yet).
Can you give it a try, and tell us if this corrects your problem?

outgoing voice calls if contact sources (google or thunderbird) are enabled.
This happens with the latest jitsi nightly amd64 debian package. I also
tried an older jitsi package I found (jitsi_1.1.4444.10378-1_amd64.deb)
which doesn't behave like this.
