I am running TB 102.9.0 and use Provider for Google Calendar to sync my calendar with my other devices. Information that I receive from Google Calendar is correct, but any entry that I add to my computer has been shifting by one hour since daylight savings started. I have checked the timezone settings on my computer and in Google Calendar and all are correct. I tried deleting my Google Calendar subscription from TB and adding it back, but everything is still off by one hour. What more can I try?

Lightning calendar not writable

When I receive emails with calendar invitations, I can't put the event into my calendar because Thunderbird says that I have "no writable calendar". In the Properties for my Calendar, when I try to associate the Calendar with an email account, I see two, sometimes in the past three, identical email addresses listed, and that's the email address that I need to associate with the Calendar. Sometimes, I just keep trying one after the other until my Calendar becomes writable and I can save the emailed invitation. However, most of the time, no matter what email address (in the Properties list) that I choose, I still get the error that my Calendar is not writable.

I use Thunderbird with Exquilla for Microsoft Exchange. That works fine. Earlier, I had tried Thunderbird with Owl for Microsoft Exchange, which also seemed to work but my office suggested continuing with Exquilla.

Thank you for any assistance with this showstopper problem. Best regards, Damon

THREE years & STILL no solution ??? Thunderbird / Lightening "convert" to event does NOT add participants for easy schduling and really by 2023 it SHOULD!

In 2020 I had asked how it's not possible ( and after what, 10yrs of Lightening being in production ) that in 2020 that when a person ( we will call him Bob ) send another person ( we will call her Sally ) an email ( and there are 2 other people on that same email ) that when Sally wants to QUICKLY and EASILY setup a meeting that people from the email from Bob are not just added to that new meeting and you are done?

This should be INCREDIBLY incredibly easy to do: right click --> Convert To..... ----> Event and then when the dialog box pops up, Bob, Sally, and the 2 other people are added to that meeting. Yet, No. Three years later? How can this be ?

In the original post https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1295910 and as commented on by @sfhowes it was suggested to ask on the chat groups. Yep. Did that. Nothing. Again, How can this be?

So, Let's add up the time it takes to do this, the number of clicks, etc,. and it's more than 5 mins just to go back and forth to the original email, copy and past peoples names and put them into the "attendees" dialog box. If I have to do 10 of these a day - and I often do, that's 1hr a day of meeting setup that I could do in literally 1 min if the above functionality worked and which it does on just about EVERY other email platform out there. Add this up, 1hr a day, 20 work days a month that's 20hrs a month * 12 = 240 hrs or TWENTY FOUR DAYS of our lives wasted every month making calendar invites where if right right click --> Convert To..... ----> Event and peoples names and email addresses were already added, this would not be happening.

Is there someone at Modzilla / Thunderbird / Lightening that we can pay to put this functionality which was clearly there in the past back, so we can ALL have 23 days of our life back every year? :))))))))))))))

It's 2023. This functionality is clearly needed to be enabled again.

Events that start late one day and go into the next day past midnight show up on both days, I would love to be able to have it show up only on the first day, like it does on my Google Calendar. Is there a way to fix this? Or a way to set the "beginning of day" to be later like 5AM?

ICS import fails

Attempting to import bank holidays from the UK government web site (https://www.gov.uk/bank-holidays/england-and-wales.ics) fails with the error code MODIFICATION_FAILED. The description seems irrelevant to import: "If you're seeing this message after snoozing or dismissing a reminder and this is for a calendar you do not want to add or edit events for, you can mark this calendar as read-only to avoid such experience in future. To do so, get to the calendar properties by right-clicking on this calendar in the list in the calendar or task view."

I have successfully imported earlier versions of this file.

I am self-hosting a EteSync server in my home and have the EteSync-Dav software setup on my local machine. When I connect to the calendar link associated with my EteSync account directly and input my credentials it successfully downloads a .ics file. However, when I attempt to connect to my calendar using the exact same link in Thunderbird it results in this error message: "Could not find calendars at this location. Please check your settings." I've gone back through the entire process of setting up my EteSync server and the EteSync-Dav adapter to rule out user-error multiple times and I wanted to check and verify that this wasn't just simply a bug on Thunderbird's side. My hunch has been that this is likely an SSL cert issue, since the EteSync-Dav adapter was setup with an SSL cert, but the cert is installed at the OS level, so I am not sure why this would be the case. I even tried to manually import the cert into Thunderbird with no luck.

Thank you in advance.
