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'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,

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

When new item is added to my Google calendar via Thunderbird that I share with my wife it is updated on my Thunderbird calendar it doesn't update my wife's Thunderbird calendar even using the synchronize command.

We have close Thunderbird and reopen it to get it to upload to her calendar.

Is this known bug?

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?

Shared Google Calendar no longer updates

Lightning in Thunderbird works fine with my own Google calendar. On Google I also have read access to my wife's calendar and a public (holidays) calendar, which were both subscribed to in Lightning. Recently both of these calendars have come up empty in Lightning, even though I can still see them in Google.

I therefore tried to unsubscribe and resubscribe to them in Lightning. This appears to be out of date. The illustration doesn't look like what I see in Google.

Nonetheless, by improvising on those instructions, I was able to restore the public (holidays) calendar in Lightning. However, this doesn't work for my wife's calendar. As long as I am logged in to my Google account the URL provided by Google works in Firefox, but no data from her calendar are displayed in Lightning, even though I provided my Google login credentials. Other calendar apps (Apple calendars in iPadOS and MacOS and Outlook calendar in Windows 10) can see her calendar, How can I restore (read-only) access in Lightning?

I am importing events from another calendar. This calendar and the events are marked as read only. However, they do not contain any reminders and I cannot add reminders because of the locked status. Is there anyway to add reminders to these entries or remove the read only status? The other alternative is to write a program that regularly writes the current calendar to a .ics file, finds items and creates its own notifications. I really do not want to have to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I can't "dismiss" my calendar events. Most all events have reminders that pop up--handy. But when I try to dismiss them, the window goes away, but then comes back again within minutes. They NEVER go away.

I've tried to delete the event itself, and it refuses to be deleted. It will disappear from my calendar, but then repopulate, again, within minutes.

I'm running TB 102.6.1 (64-bit) on the release channel (perhaps *that's* the issue...) with Provider for Google Calendar as one of my few extensions (only five in all...). I'm hesitant to disable Provider as that means I get no calendar at all (at least, no Google Calendar).

Ideas?

I am not sure if I am using the correct verbage but here goes: When I launch Thunderbird a panel opens in the upper left with all events that are in the past and not yet dismissed and all events for the current day that are not dismissed. I was in a hurry and instead of minimizing it I clicked the red x in the right upper corner. Now it does not dislay on startup and I cannot find a way to get it back since it has been there since I installed Thunderbird. I believe the correct name is Event Preview Pane but not sure. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am using Thunderbird on two Linux machines plus K9 on Android and I'm delighted with the way they all work well accessing the same email account.

When it comes to calendar functionality, the two instances of Thunderbird work well together courtesy of CalDav hosted by my web/email hosting company. On Android, I have a gap. I haven't had a working calendar on my phone since I chose to stop adding entries into Google Calendar.

I have two questions: 1) Does anybody know if Thunderbird for Android will have CalDav calendar functionality ? 2) Can anybody recommend a simple Open Source Android calendar app to fill what is hopefully a temporary gap ?

Thank you

Hello,

I have thunderbird. I have several email accounts set up. I have a Google Calendar. I sometimes receive invites by emails and I want to be able to accept them s.t. they get added to my Google Calendar automatically. I don't use the Calendar feature of Thunderbird itself.

- Now what I did was download the Google Calendar Provider Addon and synced my Google Calendar. This gets me the "no writeable calendar" found. - If I create a "local" calendar inside Thunderbird, it works but then it just addes the invite to the local calendar and I have 0 sync. - I thought maybe I use CalDav but File => new => Calendar just shows me "local calendar/network calendar/google calendar".

Any help is appreciated.

When I receive a meeting invite, which was scheduled for 10am ET, the meeting is created in my calendar for 10am PT (which is the time zone for calendar) instead of 7am PT.

When I open the same meeting invite in Outlook, the correct time, 7am PT, is used - so I know the meeting invite is correct.

This is issue is very frustrating as I don't know when the "true" time for the meeting is.

Using 102.6.0

Hi there,

I use the newest version of Thunderbird and I am superscribed to several work-related calendars that I need to check from time to time, like the one where people put if they are doing home office, are in holidays or sick, etc. However, I don't need to see all this information in my Today Pane view in my Inbox, because it usually gets messy . How can I edit the configuration of the Today Pane so it shows only my personal calendar or selected ones?

Thank you very much for your help.

Best, Victor
