TB 102.6.1 / Provider for Google 102.

I have a number of calendars with my google account. Syncing works fine except for one of the. Events I enter in the Google app don't show up in TB, but the reverse works (TB --> G).

Any suggestions.

I know I can always create another Calendar, copy the old to the new, ..., but I hope there is a more elegant solution.

I face the strange behavior that items added with TB to calendar or tasks which will be synchronized, but those which are made on my tablet or mobile won´t be brought into TB although I can see them in SoGo web interface.

I am using the native CalDAV and CardDAV solution in TB.

Can somebody help?

I see that I can save an ics file from an email or website and import it from within thunderbird. I want thunderbird to be my default calendar app, so I can just click on / open an ICS file and it does so in Thunderbird, NOT Outlook. I don't even see a way to uninstall outlook without having to uninstall office altogether (not a viable solution).

I've been using Thunderbird for work for a few years and a few months ago my calendar integration with my Google Calendar stopped working. I've tried everything I can think of including re-installing calendars, but without success. My Thunderbird at home can still accept invites, but not on my work computer despite verifying that the calendar address and such is the same.

Initially, when I'd click 'Accept' on an invite, nothing would happen (ie no prompt, failure etc), the invite would just stay there without response. Now it's asking me if I want to link it with one of two different calendars I have, both of which I've verified under the calendar on Thunderbird that it isn't associated with an email address (has the yellow bar at the top saying if you want to use this calendar to store invitations you need to associate with an email address).

I can't think of what to do for next steps for troubleshooting, any thoughts?

I'd like to make a plugin that adds an icon to the days of the calendar indicating the phase the Moon will have on that day.

There seems to be little up to date documentation on making extensions for Thunderbird's built in browser and there doesn't seem to be any information on making plugins that change the calendar. Is it even possible to make such a plugin? If so, what is a good starting point for learning how to do so?

Cheers.

In older versions of Thunderbird, an ICalendar feed I use displayed events as expected. Newer versions do not. The feed displays as expected in other applications such as evolution. I ran the feed through an ICalendar validator and it came up clean.

I also brought up the developer tools panel, but saw no errors on the console while accessing the feed. Help is appreciated.

The attached image shows the evolution calendar displaying the events in green.

Thank you,

Using the powerful TB Lighning a lot, i am coming across one problem regurlarly: When copy-pasting a calendar-event, i have to choose in which calendar it should be saved. This is really annoying when copying more than a few entries. So my question: Is there any chance to disable calendar-selection dialog on copy-paste?

(in my imagination it would be enough to save in the currently selected calendar feed..)

Thank you for any hints, P.

I had a big event related to security on my ISP last year and I moved my calendar and contacts to an internal cardav and caldav server in my hosted Synology NAS. I was able to setup Thunderbird well and I did assigned a calendar identity to the calendar with local management of the invitations. In the configuration, it correctly shows, as in the article (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enable-email-invitations-caldav-servers-configured) that I prefer Client side email scheduling and I have assigned one of my email accounts. The problem I have is that when I create a calendar entry and state that I want to invite people, by default it states that the organizer is otto.acuna@local.host, not the email identity I assigned and that it shows in properties

Any ideas if this is something I need to edit somewhere internal? Thank you in advance for your help Otto

Thunderbird 102.6.1, Windows 11

Over the last several updates to Tbird (can't say exactly when it started), my Google calendar seldom gets updated, and then seemly only at random times. The "synchronize calendars" command has no effect. A week or more can go by with no update, although my computer is always on and connected to the internet. Exiting and restarting Tbrird does not help. Eventually th calendar updates itself, unpredictably.

When I add an event to the Google calendar in Tbird, it shows up immediately in other instances of the Google calendar, such as on my phone. So we know that Tbird calendar is talking to Google, if only in one direction.

I didn't see this problem mentioned in any of the help articles. If others have reported this problem in the Community, I didn't find the thread. Any suggestions?

Im using thunderbird with a nextcloud calendar Nextcloud v25.0.3 Thunderbird v91.13.1 DAVx (to sync on Android)

All my calendars sync across the devices and Ive added my caldav calendars to my mobile devices. When I try send an invite, from Thunderbird, to someone else in our organisation to accept on their mobile, the invitation sends an email with 2 attachments 'invite.vcs' or invite.ics' So there is no option to accept or decline, if I open the attachment the only option I have is to save to calendar, but that will also not send an accept or decline. If I send the email to another address, for example a gmail address, the inivite sends exactly how you would expect and has the accept or decline buttons.

If I send an invite from my mobile device to thunderbird, the invitation sends as expect. But once I try accept or decline in thunderbird, no response seems to be sent back to my mobile device or atleast nothing i can see If I send from mobile device to mobile device, there is an option to accept, which opens a browser window, but atleast the option is there. It also has an attachment, this is 'event.ics'

So I think the issue is somewhere with thunderbird, but Im not sure. Would really appreciate any help

Hi!

I was wondering if it is possible to disable html when adding a description to a calendar event and just use plain text instead. I use many other email tools to sync my google calendar to and every time I add or edit a description to an event I have in my calendar with Thunderbird it messes up the whole description. When I then look up the description on my phone it just displays me all the html tags that got added by Thunderbird.

Would be very usefull to be able to deactivate this feature! Or maybe someone can point me to the correct setting to disable it completely!

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

Is there a way for me to send an email to all event attendees after the event has been created? In Outlook, I can open an event and do a Reply-all on the event and it creates an event for me. But when I try to do it with Thunderbird, nothing happens. I also don't see an obvious way to do that, other than editing the event.

Am I missing something?

Thanks,

1. Today on opening Thunderbird I get a page with all the new features - can't find that after closing - can you give me a link?

2. BIG PROBLEMS though now with my calendar - all my repeating events have disappeared & it won't let me add new ones, only single events. I need this to work like it used to asap.

3. I want the daily events pane to be back on the right side of my screen - but can't find a way to make that happen - can that be done?

4. When the reminder pop up appears, if I click dismiss the now empty pop up screens stays open - how do I get it to auto close after I select to dismiss or remind me later like it used to?

When I woke my computer from "Sleep mode" on the morning of 14 Jan 2023 The Event Calendar on the right pane still showed the date as 13 Jan 2023 As illustrated in the first screen shot, there are even 2× "Today" entries, one for the 13th, and one for the 14th. When bringing up a new Event, by tapping the new Event button button, even the dates defaulted to the 13th, and not to the current day, the 14th.

Tapping the "Today" button in the header of the Calendar Event pane, did force the pane to refresh, and update itself. Subsequently, a "New Event" was dated to "today" by default.

This has happened on previous versions of Thunderbird, I just happened to document it this time. Most days (99% of the time), my computer is shutdown, so on restart, when Thunderbird launches, the Calendar Event pane syncs with the current date by default.

Hello, I'm wondering why some of my calendars listed under "Other calendars" aren't getting synced.

They are: - Facebook events calendar added through HTTPS URL - some other website's calendar added through Webcal URL - a calendar created and managed by an external app through API

Few other calendars from there, like holidays from various religions, got automatically added. Can I sync them somehow or do they need to be added manually?
