For Thunderbird 15.0 / Lightning 1.7 the following procedure works for me: Open the "Today Pane" ie. the Events panel on the right hand side next to the email list. Drag&Drop the ics-file onto that pane. In my case (Kubuntu 12.04) it will create the event. Hope this helps. N.B In Windows 7, you need to hold the CTRL key down while dragging the ICS ...

I have found the answer: If you have Lightning installed, right-click on the email, and from the context menu select Convert To->Task.

Use Google Tasks Sync for Mozilla Thunderbird. It requires Lightning for calendar support.

There is no integrated search as far as I know. However, there is a rather good search function in Lightning, you can access it under the main menu > Events and Tasks > Find events. A search bar along with a list of events will appear on top of your main calendar view. You can filter the search criteria on a time basis and expand the events information (and ...

Try two things (I'll start with the no-cost option first): Unplug everything, press the power button (in an attempt to turn it back on), then plug everything back in and power it on again; this is a "deep power cycle" and I am guessing that the extra power that might have traveled over your network wiring may have overcharged some of your capacitors (or ...

I use a Google Calendar with Thunderbird/Lightning and I have always been able to Accept invitations through Thunderbird. I recently lost the Accept/Decline buttons and just figured out the problem. I had recently added a shared iCloud calendar, and the new calendar was automatically associated with the same email address as the Google calendar. All I had ...

This one works for me http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/calendar/lightning/releases/1.0b2/contrib/linux-x86_64/

Found it ... it was under "Events and Tasks".

Before my family moved to another system, I synced all the calenders to iCalX. You could also try Google Calender, but you are going to need a central account to sync your stuff to (family account?). Don't try and do in house syncing. It's way too difficult.

There is no way to directly sync, one problem being that 'Google Tasks' are far simpler than 'Thunderbird Tasks'. Howerver, "Google Tasks Sync 0.3.1" is a currently working addon that pops up in the Task daily pane to the right of the calendar and email (when daily pane view is active) and presents the Google Task system nested neatly there. It's not a web ...

No, you can't do that in the current version. This was a feature request that languished a while (since 2003): Events spanning days are seen as multiple events (display), and was then watered down into this: Add markers for multi-day events in multiday views The watered-down requirement was to have made the 0.9 release according to the Sunbird 0.9 release ...

One interesting workaround for this problem, whilst we're stuck waiting for tasks API, is to use Bryan Clark's Google Calendar Tab. As long as you have your tasks displayed on your Google calendar, you will then have access to them from Thunderbird too. Obviously this isn't as good as native integration into Thunderbird via an API, but its the best I've ...

I had the same problem as you, I wanted something smooth and quick which ran on both my iPhone and my Computer. The solution I found, was Google Tasks. The problem with this, however, is that it requires internet to be present, so you would need an iPhone with working 3G/GPRS when you need to add something on the go! It has a complete iPhone interface! ...

The problem here is that one accepted it will send a whole load of new erroneous invitations. The bug details from Mozilla are here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=400808 A fix to this issue with GC would be hugely welcome to those of us who are heavy calendar users with open source mail clients! This issue is so significant for some of our ...

The refresh intervals are statically specified in the Lightning extension's source code, but Thunderbird extension code is all in Javascript and the XML dialect Gecko uses to specify user interfaces, so it's not particularly hard to add whatever intervals you need. Here's how you do so: First, if you don't already have one handy, you'll need to download a ...

Google has released the Google Tasks API in May 2011. There's a getting started guide on the Google apps developers blog. The GDATA Provider developers track the issue but it hasn't been resolved yet.

Right click on the mail and click Convert > Event

That appears to be a bug in Thunderbird: 799505 -No reminders for events organized by someone else There is a related bug report / feature request open since August 2008: 451380 -Events from accepted invitations cannot be edited or updated locally

According to multiple threads I've found, Google cal does not support "Accept" or "Reject" somehow. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=1826045 The solution was to set the "Automatically add invitations to my calendar" option, but it doesn't say whether on gmail or in lightning. Just found a solution for me (not-a-google-calendar) - the ...

They are two different problems. The modem has a coaxial input for the cable carrying the data stream. The coaxial surge protector looks after this should something happen on the cable or associated components in the suppliers network. If the modem also has a mains power supply this will make it susceptible to mains surges following lightning strikes. A ...

In many countries, cable broadband is carried in underground conduits that are less likely to be hit by lightning. Some cable broadband is provided (at least partly) over optical cable which is not conductive and does therefore not transmit an electrical surge. Phone-line broadband can be supplied on phone lines that are suspended from telegraph poles above ...

Here is my work-around using Thunderbird 17.0.4, Lightning 1.9.1, and Provider 0.18. Double click on the invite so it is in its own tab. Right click on the email invite and a sub-menu appears. Select 'Convert to' and then a smaller sub menu window appears with "Google task", "Event", or "Task". Select "Event" and it will place the details of the invite as ...

It depends on the zooming factor (CTRL+/-) of the view i.e. the number of hours displayed in the view, but arises when the height of the events is the minimum value. The minimum height depends on the text font size and a bit of margin/padding in the event boxes (the minimum height allows to vertically display the text). If you set a duration to 5 minutes ...

It is definitely possible without a published API because I use a product called gSyncIT to sync tasks from outlook to google tasks. Unfortunately their product is only for Outlook and not Thunderbird/Lightning.

This is a known bug which has recently fixed, you can find details on it here. The most recent version of lightning will fix this (See Systech's answer for links).

have you tried google calendar sync? It's compatible with Outlook 2007 and 2010. You can then sync your thunderbird with the google calendar.

Actually, if you drag and drop an email into firefox, it will display the email URI. While Firefox is unable to understand the imap:// protocol (at least that is what I use), if you then cut-n-paste this link back into the Calendar event using either the Attach icon or Options->Attach Web Page... In Lightning 1.6 anyway, this then adds a list of attachments ...
