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 :-((

Let's start all over. Thunderbird automatically updated and I have lost all entries in my calendar. I have had help with solving my problem which have not worked. How do I launch the Thunderbird about.config? I have been told to go to TOOLS and select OPTIONS. There is no OPTIONS to select under the under the TOOLS menu. I have 3 calendars and all are shown as ENABLED. What did the update change and how do I get my entries back?

Why is it that what should be the simplest task in the world is a Rube Goldberg nightmare? We have a number of Thunderbird Calendars in different colors (red for appointments, blue for special occasions etc).

First: one of the calendars seems to be corrupted and we want to restore it from the Windows 7 back up. Simple? Impossible. We can not find them. You can not restore what you can not find.

Second: our office has a new computer and we SIMPLY want to copy those calendars over to the new unit where we have installed Thunderbird. Simple? Impossible. Same problem: if you can not find them you can't copy them over.

All responses to these issues have been wrong and been given by people who have obviously not ACTUALLY DONE IT. People should not tell us to do what they have not actually done themselves for the documentation simply wrong in many regards. So please do not tell us to do what you have not ACTUALLY DONE to confirm the instructions are correct. Simple: Verify in fact. Vet the instructions in real life where we actually live. Don't tell us what *should* be true but show us what is proven to actually *be* true. All else is a waste of all our time. Don't tell -- show.

We are told the calendars are in the Profile. We find the Profile (we are showing hidden files and folders) but we can find nothing that even suggests calendar files and nothing that even suggests files with the properties of the calendars on our computer. Not a hint. not a clue. We can not even discover the path-name. We have supplied screen shots of all this. When instructions are proven to be wrong the solution is not to just ignore the fact. This should be the simplest task imaginable and not the embarking on a new career.

We have Windows 7 and the most recent version of FireFox. If a calender is corrupted how do we restore of from a back up? If we buy a new computer and install Thunderbird and want to copy the calendar over how do we do that? We can do none of this and we can not even find the calendars. When someone actually does this do let us know. Does anything really need to be this complicated?

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.

How Do I Get Calendars To Complete Synchronizing?

For a while now I have had a problem with something continuing to run. On the Inbox tab of Thunderbird the "busy" icon continues to cycle indicating that something is running. The stop icon next to it is either greyed out or is black but does nothing when clicked. When I open the activity manager I show multiple calendars in the process of synchronizing. The status bars are to the far right seemingly to indicate that they are just about complete. I have included an image of the activity manager. This causes everything to run slow though everything appears to work. I currently run Windows 7, Thunderbird 45 and Lightning 4.7. The problem started prior to updating to these current versions of Thunderbird and Lightning. I had hoped that updating would correct the problem. I'd like to correct the problem while continuing the ability to use all calendars if possible. Is this a problem with my system or with the software? Is this a false indicator and nothing is actually running? I appreciate any help. Thanks.

I tried everything (local calendar or online an so on). Version 52.9.1 works excellent, but 60 runs only without lightning (disable during installation). With lightning it crashes not directly, but after some time, for example: you have a marker in the calendar to inform you by sound or similar.Go back to a separate add-on.

Calendar stops working after Thunderbird & Lightning updated to 68.4.1

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.

Since the latest upgrade to version 91 the Calendar has become unusable. To start with, after the update my main Calendar has completely disappeared taking with it very important upcoming appointments. In addition to that if I create an event all the data entered does not appear in the relevant day in the calendar and it will also not allow me to import any future events from other calendars.

To put bluntly, as a calendar it is totally useless. Any suggestions please?
