Found a workaround. Turns out if I uncheck the "Show missed reminders" under Preferences>Calendar>Reminders, I don't haver this issue. I don't need to be seeing missed reminders so problem is (essentially) solved.
Use the URL you suggest, https://apidata.googleusercontent.com/caldav/v2/yourID/events, but rather than using firstname.lastname@example.org as the substitute for yourID, put in the calendar name instead.
To find that name, start with a Google Calendar window, then go to Settings->Calendars and click on the name of the Calendar you care about. Now scroll down ...
First, if you don't already have one handy, you'll need to download a ...
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 ...
The case of the Exchange (EWS) calendar
One issue like this has been running for years in Mozilla support site.
I have been suffering the same problem in my Thunderbird Calendar with the corporate Exchange calendar. In my case, I had removed the recurring event from the calendar but it still was present in my Thunderbird view. I could not dismiss the ...
I've found that the following works, though there may be neater solutions:-
Right-cling on the event and select Copy.
Open a text editor and select new, right-click and paste.
Save the file as EventName.ics and attach this to your e-mail.
Your recipient will then have to save and import, as described in your link.
In the current version (0.18 with lightning 1.9.1), this is a hidden feature which is disabled by default. It is slightly buggy, but works sufficiently to just get an invitation into your google calendar from your (possibly non-google) inbox.
Using the config editor, simply set calendar.google.enableEmailInvitations to true. You may also want to set ...
I've suffered the same symptoms but with the following configuration:
Windows 7 Enterprise
No Google Calendar plug-in
A few webcal calendars plus a couple of local moz-storage-calendar calendars
After a few wild goose chases, this solved it for me:
For all non-editable calendars, change Properties->Email to "None"
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 ...
If you have the Lightning calendar extension installed on Thunderbird and have the Events pane open.
You can add an ICS file by holding the CTRL key and then dragging the ICS file on to the events pane. (The CTRL key needs to be pressed on Windows 7, but apparently it may work without pressing the CTRL key on Windows 10 and Linux)
The only problem with it ...
This is not unique to Lightning. Events and Tasks are common elements of any calendaring system.
The basic difference is that an Event requires attendance and therefore is a blocked off and unavailable period of time, while a Task is a point in time by which something must be completed/turned in/delivered/etc.
How you use these is up to you, and so ...
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 ...
I've been using the same edit to let network ics refresh daily or weekly.
Added (60*24) and (60*24*7) in the list.
But you don't have to bother with unpacking and repacking xpi file.
Just find out where your application/extension lives.
On my mac, it happens to be in ~/Library/Thunderbird/Profiles/...somepath.../chrome/calendar/content/calendar directory.
I appear to have found the depressing answer to my own question. I'll post it as a cautionary tale that may save someone else from a similar fate.
In Debian, I was backing up my home directory, which contains the Thunderbird profile, using Ark to save it as a tarball. To ensure none of the files were in use, I booted into another OS and did it from there. ...
The following describes how to still turn off missed reminders, after it disappeared from the options-menue:
tested with: thunderbird 68.6.0 (64-bit) on GNU Linux Debian 10
if one uses the build in calendar of thunderbird (it was ...
I could not send emails with TB 45.0.0 so I went back to TB 38.6.0 Now to answer your question No. 1:
When you install your favourite version, uncheck the Maintenance/update box in Advanced Install.
After the install, go to the (X86) Program Files where you will find TB. Open its Folder and delete maintenanceservice.exe and maintenanceservice_installer.exe
Mozilla lists tyhe following files at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Files_and_folders_in_the_profile_-_Thunderbird for the Lightning calendatr:
local.sqlite (which you've already brough over)
In addition, you can import any .ics files that you might have added.
Let me know if this fixes the issue.
I have transferred my data file from system to system, including new installs. Here is the trick. I keep my data in a directory k:\data\email. When i install thunderbird, i hook it up to this directory on a new profile 'Wendy'.
1 alter the shortcut to add option -P
2. start this, the default should show the Profile manager
3. Create a new profile, ...
In Preferences → Advanced → General → Config Editor...,
input calendar.registry.*.color to the search text box and you'll find the settings you want to edit.
To tell which one is for which calendar, search for calendar.registry.*.name.
Yes, you CAN link the Office365 Calendars to your Thunderbird and it is possible to both read and write to/from the calendar.
First, install the Lightning Addon in Thunderbird
Next install the ExchangeServer Addon in Thunderbird
Now refer to this thread for all of the settings2.
I've done this and it works.
It even links your addressbooks.
I've been looking at this and can't find an easy solution.
However, I plan to try the following steps tomorrow, unless someone has a reason why it won't work:
Export all Outlook TASKS to csv
Edit the csv to look like Lightning EVENTS
(this will lose some data and looks like the most difficult step as Lightning is very fussy about importing csv's. ...
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 ...
Using Google Calendar Provider, by default e-mail invitations are deactivated.
You can use this solution to fix it.
Open Preferences -> Advanced
Edit configuration and search for key calendar.google.enableEmailInvitations
Set it to true
Right click on your primary calendar and select the email address to use.
You can now ...
This article has a few useful hints and helped me fix the issue of no accept button.
Simple create a new network calendar with URL:
Replace: your-email-address with your @googlemail.com address.
Make sure it's @googlemail.com and not @gmail.com
I tried adding my calendar using ics, caldav several times and was unable to do so as the calendar was unwriteable. This meant I could not accept invitations. What I found was that if I added the google calendar, then exited thunderbird, then restarted thunderbird I was prompted to upgrade the newly added calendar to a writable calendar. When I did the ...
Here is my work-around using Thunderbird and Lightining. I read/write google calendar through CalDAV
I think that is the only way to bind the email with google calendar. So, when you receive an ics attachment, you can Accept/Decline invitation on your google calendar.
Hope it helps.
