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.

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'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.

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.

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. ;-)

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.

Is there any way to select other than the "home" calendar as standard? Have tried to change order in the calendar setting, but when I accept a meeting invitation it always place the meeting in the home calendar. I would like to select the syncronized Google calendar.

The syncronization with Google calender works perfect when manual enter something.

New version of TB and again event colors are gone.

I used the patch Todd gave me in the previous topic with the same name, archived. It worked after again half an hour of useless work.

Something changed at some point in time with the calendar file. When I started using Thunderbird I was able to set up entries in the calendar file and give them names and an associated colour. I can't seem to do that any longer. Eg. I set up entries for Birthdays which showed on the calendar as purple and Anniversaries where green. I can't do that anymore. Was that ability removed at some time?

Another situation I came across was importing .ics files. The method changed and now you have to open a file. What it does is ask where you want to put the contents, ie as an Event or a Task. I tell it where I want it put . But when I check the entry it shows as the .ics file and not as an Event or Task. Then I have a terrible time trying to remove it. Nothing happens when I tell the program that the Event/Task is completed. HELP!

When typing up event comments, in Calendar, the spellchecker highlights incorrect spellings but does not offer alternatives when the word is right-clicked, as the email composer does. This has become rather annoying and one other user asked the same question in November 2023, but never got a response. That particular thread has been archived, so I can't add to it. Can the developers please look into this?

Hi lads,

I used TB for many years but only now started using it in office. I have a problem with the calendar function however which I have to use now. I'd like to have an audio alert and/or window pop-up forcing interaction for any event in my calendar, let's say 15 min ahead. I tend to overlook the small notification pop-ups in the bottom right corner of the screen since they also vanish automatically after a few seconds.

I can get these small bottom right corner pop-ups to appear for any event by using the global notification preferences in the Edit Calender options. However, I can not globally activate an audio alert or a window requiring interaction for upcoming events. I can just activate a reminder manually for each and every event, which is a lot of work, naturally. So, is there a way to activate a reminder (not a notification, which is the bottom right pop up I assume) globally for any event in a calendar?

Can also be done by an add-on or by manually changing source files, if anyone has suggestions in this direction.

Thanks in advance, trashmaster

Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to have a calendar feature that's like Apple's Calendar and like Google's Calendar where I can drop files into the date I create or will edit. I would like it to also have an unlimited attachments list where I can drop as many as I can. Also if I can drop off files or have the destination open on my drive/pc?

Best,

Kevin

OS: Windows 11 Pro (23H2) Tb Version: 115.9.0 (64-Bit)

This is more a design question. With the Supernove release you moved the search bar and action icon into the top of the window. So on the email and calendar tab all the buttons are now on the very top next to search bar.

I configured to create new appointments in a new tab, not an extra window. But in this appointment tab the action buttons are in a seperate action bar below the tabs for email and calendar and not next to the search bar on top like I would have expected it according to the new design. I added screenshot to describe better what I mean. Is it planned to move the action buttons to the top for the new apointment tab?`

In general it is a bit annoying that the height of the toolbar on top varies. Like if there are buttons and you choose "show text below symbols" for it the toolbar is higher, of course. But then if you have a tab without symbols, e.g. the settings-tab or the new appointment tab, the height of the toolbar reduces. It would be great if this could be standardized.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I have come a long way using linux but there is one thing I am missing dearly in Thunderbird Calendar: I want to see the next x days to move around my appointments if needed and to see my future days. On Wednesday I don't need to see the past two days but Monday and Tuesday of the next week, so I can use the time without switching to a month view or move my calendar around.

Is this hard to implement?

Thank you!

Best regards Dejan
