Open up Thunderbird click on Address Book then go to File> Select all then go to Tools> Export Then use the drop-down arrow and choose .csv and give it a name and save it in a convenient place.(look at screenshots)

Now open up Windows Live Mail click on Contacts then click on All Contacts then click on Import and choose .csv then click Browse and Navigate to where you saved the .csv click open then click Next that should import your address book.( look at screenshots)
