Impossible to import calendar from one PC to another

Profiles was bad enough, as Thunderbird can never open the zip file (the wording of the alternative method is gobbledegook, and there are no recognisable files if you attempt to decipher it). At least you can set all your email addresses up manually - you can't physically re-types five years of calendar entries. The infuriating this is that when you start the import, the calendar entries appear before your eyes for up to five seconds and then the program crashes ... again and again and again. I must have been trying this on and off for years now and still nobody has fixed it.

Hi Everyone!

I am currently on Thunderbird 115.10.1 (64-bit) and for a few days now, I can't open the calendar tab. The "Today Pane" is working and showing events though.

When going to "View" the items "Calendar" and "Tasks" are greyed out though.

Any idea on how to get the calendar back? The company will move us all to Exchange and Outlook soon, so I thought I might "survive", but it is pretty impractical have to open my calendars separately in the browser. You only notice how often you use something, when you don't have it. ;-)

Calendar not syncing

I'm setting up TB for the first time with multiple email and calendar accounts. Some are gmail / google, and others o365.

The primary TB account's calendar doesn't seem to be syncing fully. It's an o365. account. But the email is working.

I added an event on my Outlook for Android on my phone. Its appearing in OWA, and in New Outlook on my computer (so it did sync from mobile Android device to server, and from server to my New Outlook on the Windows desktop). But its not appearing in TB.

Not sure what to check or what the issue might be.

Also, I'd love to replace Outlook Android on my mobile with what I think is K-9. But can't get the same account referenced here to connect to the outbound server.

Welcome any help, and appreciate you all doing this collaborative work.

Accept meeting invite and no response is created or sent even when requested

I'm using thunderbird 115.10.1 on Ubuntu Linux. I've set up a second calendar and associated it with an email account hosted by Polaris Mail. That email address has worked fine within thunderbird for everything else for a long time, but I only recently associated it with a calendar. When I get a meeting invite, for example from a gmail user, and accept that invite, selecting "send a response now", no message ever arrives at the email of the inviter and no email ends up in any of my folders (drafts or sent). It is like nothing happens. The event *is* accepted and added to the calendar, but no respose is created or sent. I have another email account and calendar and meeting acceptances and responses seem to work fine.

I've looked at all the settings I can find and they seem appropriate and analogous to those with the working email/calendar. The correct email address appears in the calendar properties opened by right-clicking on the Calendar and selecting properties.

Any help? Thanks.

EDIT button in Calendar Event window not visible

Been using Thunderbird/Lightning for many years. In the latest update (115.10.1 (64 bit)), the EDIT button is not initially visible when I click on an event in my Calendar. In past releases, this edit button has always been visible in the pop-up window when I try to edit info in a New Event task. This happens SOME of the time, but not all. Any idea what changed, and is it possible to check out the code and change it back so when I double-click on an event, I see the edit button. At this time (not a big deal, but slows me down), when I go to edit an event, I have to move to a different monitor, resize the pop-up window so I can see the EDIT button, then finally click on it to edit the Event. In the past, the cursor immediately went to the EDIT button. Any info on changing this back the old way would be appreciated.

I have Thunderbird version 115.5.1 installed on my Windows 11 laptop. I have logged into my gmail account and subscribed to google calendar. I have turned the off default reminders for events and don't have any extensions installed, but when I create a new event and select "No Reminder," Thunderbird automatically sets a 30-minute reminder. I can modify the reminder by editing the event after saving, but I can't directly create a new event with no reminder.
