Tbird 68.2.2 has again (for me at any rate) broken the calendar and provider for google calendar

Hi all, A few weeks back TB 68.2 interfered with the proper functioning of Lightning, and there were issues whether you use the provider for google calendar or not. 68.2.1 fixed these problems. Unfortunately with 68.2.2 they've all come back again. It's as though some corrections got missed out. I have, naturally, been through removing the provider, removing Lightning and putting them back. Lightning is no longer working properly, with or without the provider. OS Windows 10.0.18362.476 I don't see much mention of this either in this forum or on Bugzilla. Am I alone :-((

I haven't been able to use lightning for a while. Most of my calendars have disappeared and I cannot make more. The buttons to create them and events are dimmed. I cannot even view the calendar that it says I still have. Seems like every few update cycles something else is missing instead of the fix that I was hoping for.

Long running scripts have been a constance daily occurrence every time I use my desktop computer since seems like forever. This is the latest one: chrome://calendar/content/calendar-base-view.xml:198..... Not sure if they are all calendar scripts because I'm not always given any script info, just a non responding error message sometimes. I asked for help once before and tried what was suggested, as best I could, but I still have the aggravating problem just as often as ever. However, admittedly I'm not all that computer savy and am more of a user than I am a fixer. My browser is up-to-date and I also reloaded a new one recently. Add-ons are also disabled. Any help at all will be appreciated, thanks.

Provider for Google Calendar - 68.2.1 Thunderbird & Lightning - 68.4.1 Windows 10 Home 1909 (18363.592)

Almost all of the commands dealing with the calendar in Thunderbird are grayed out. My Google and other calendars no longer show up as an entry in the list of calendars. Individual calendar entries appear on calendar tab with existing info but are read only. I can not open/edit an individual calendar entry or create a new one.

I used to be able to recover from this situation by closing the calendar in Thunderbird and then closing Thunderbird. Create new event or edit an existing event by logging into Google Calendar directly. Logoff Google Calendar and then logon to Thunderbird and either open the Today Pane or the Calendar tab.

I have reported the problem on the forum for the Provider and been told that my problem looks like it has to do with Thunderbird and Lightning. I have tried several of the suggestions on this forum but they have not resolved the problem. The best result was with Safe Mode & Add-ons Disabled which lasted for just one application restart after doing that. Any help would be appreciated.

After a reinstallation, there's no longer an option to choose a preferred time zone when creating an event. I frequently need this, for example, to schedule a meeting in Mexico for a month from now. I know that the meeting will be at 9:00 in Mexico, and want to enter it at that time, rather than figuring out now what time that is in my current time zone.

This used to work beautifully, but has suddenly vanished. I've seen the suggestion that it's only available if inviting others, but that's illogical. Even when it's just an event for me (as above), I need to be able to set the time zone.

I have just migrated my calendar from Outlook to Thunderbird. I see my calendar on a column to the right. I would like to be able to see it in a whole page, to be able to see a month view, like in Outlook. I would also like to be able to colour code the calendar entries depending on category, also like in Outlook. Please let me know if there is a way I can do this. Thank you.

Ok, I have the Mail Tab and the Calendar Tabs always up. In the calendar tab I always select MONTH view. Now, in Windows 7 Ultimate if I leave Thunderbird (close program) and then return, sometimes it will have kept the month view, but often it has gone back to the day view. I need to know how/where to make sure the month view is the DEFAULT view. Thanks.

I'd like to just tell Thunderbird to use 24h clock format for dates.

My system is configured to use English (us) with US keyboard but with 24 hour clock. I'm guessing that Thunderbird just takes the "US" part and assumes everything else.

Is it possible to manually override settings that Thunderbird guesses from the system ? It would be nice if the default (or auto-detected) setting could be changed.

(I've checked other similar topics and was kindly asked to post a new question/topic).

I've just installed TB 24.4.0, Lightening 2.6.4 and Provider for Google Calendar 0.25 Win 8.1 64-bit (I use desktop 99.9999% of the time) Dell XPS 18, 8gb RAM, C: has 363 GB Free

What is happening is on the mail tab the "today pane" always uses 1/2 the window. I can not resize it. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90621425/Mail%20tab.png also when I'm on the Add-ons tab

On the calendar tab it acts normal: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90621425/calendar%20tab.png as well as the tasks tab

you will also notice the x to close it and the "today pane" button at the bottom of TB don't display either.

It seemed to work until I installed "Google Tasks Sync", I removed that plug-in and nothing has changed. Has anyone seen this before?

Love the visual upgrade to this mail client, I've been using WLM 2012 forever, but its having issues with Google Play emails. Add to that its possible to have outlook.com accounts in TB and the calendar and this client is head and shoulders above.

I'll surely donate once I can keep the today pane displayed (in a reasonable size) on the mail tab.
