When I open the thunderbird calendar the default view begins at midnight and I have to scroll to 8 am.
How can the default view begin at 8 am?
The view is stored in the session.json file in the profile folder. If it's not working, you can delete or rename it and a new one will automatically be created when TB is closed. Help/Troubleshooting Information, click Open Folder, close TB, then delete or rename the file. Open and close TB a few times and see if the scroll position is remembered.Read this answer in context 1

The start time is set in Tools/Options/Calendar/Views.
Thanks for reaching out. I think thinks are different in 68.0. The start time refers to when the work day starts (which is time range with different shading). There is no setting view start time.
You're right, there's no setting for the start time - it's midnight. But I note that the scroll bar position in Day or Week view is remembered between TB restarts, so that if the window was scrolled to show 8:00 a.m. at the top at TB exit, it window looks the same when TB is restarted (TB 60 & 69b). Does that at least work on your system?
sfhowes, That's what it used to do in earlier versions. I've tried it several times but the latest view when exiting does not save.

Sfhowes, Thanks so much. That fixed it.
Today I've updated to 68.0. When I move between Day and Week views, or in the Week, view when I change the week, it scrolls back to midnight.
Deleting the session.json file didn't help me.
I did have it get stuck with always scrolling to about 10:30 a.m. for a little while, I didn't know what I did to get it to do that, but soon after it went back to scrolling to midnight.
Update: I've installed 69beta and it has the same behaviour before and after deleting the session.json again.
Manjaro: 68 installed with pacman, 69beta installed from the AUR.

Thanks to all involved. Would be good to fix this little bug. And always good to know others have the same issues! Thunderbird 68.1.1
Tried this fix, to no avail.. TB does NOT create a new .json file... Suggestoins?
