I use Firefox. Quite often when I'm offline I accidentally try to add an event to my Google Calendar. This always fails and even worse, I lose the data. Also reading access in Firefox only works in that some pages might happen to be in the cache.

Not being able to add events is generally not so critical as I can simply do this via my phone. However, is there any way to get sane behaviour in Firefox, that is the app should not allow me to try to enter new data while offline?

In addition, I would like to be able to edit my calendar from my (Linux) computer while offline so I'd welcome any suggestions regarding that as well.

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

If you dig Mozilla, you can use Thunderbird + Lightning for offline access to Google Calendar. – William Jackson Oct 24 '12 at 12:45

There is no official (supported) way to do that at the moment; Chrome is the only browser able to do it.

The new version of Calendar offline is now only supported for Google Chrome.

The major reason this is true is that Google retired much of its "offline" client support ( its likely simply wasn't being used ) several months ago. – Ramhound Oct 24 '12 at 12:28
