Not working on Linux Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Confirming mightyevil's review from August. I just installed Lightning, and it's not working with a standard ics on my linux machine. This has been a consistent problem since forever, it seems with Lightning.

Not working with Thunderbird 52.2.1 (64-Bit) on Linux Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Unfortunatly, it is unusable with Tunderbird on Linux, at least with the calendar on my Posteo account, When I install the calendar, first everything is fine. But every 30 minutes I lose one event in the calendar, till the calendar is completely empty after a couple of days. To use the calendar, I would have to delete the calendar and newly install it at least once a day, better twice. Unfortunately, this is the only existing calendar plugin on Linux. Why is it so hard to get that calendar stuff working on Linux? On Mac OS, which I use at work, Lightning is working without any problems and I have 20 other calendar apps to choose from. I'm completely disappointed!

Thunderbird disappears Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you enjoy using Lightning with Thunderbird, don't allow Thunderbird to update. Lightning may not be supported, and your calendar is removed without warning!!

Annoying change of Lightning UI language on each Thunderbird update Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The "feature" in the title drives me crazy. After each thunderbird update, I need to re-install Lightning add-on to get back my language.

This is not normally the case. Can you contact support on this issue?

Lightning à supprimer d'rugence Rated 1 out of 5 stars

A supprimer de toute urgence. S'installe sans notre accord et bloque l'accès à la messagerie.

LIghtning - worse with age Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Latest Lightning a memory-leaking liability, must disable to keep Win Thunderbird process from steadily consuming increasing & obscene amounts of memory. Hard to know if add-on or Lightning<->Thunderbird interop at fault, but bottom-line is the pair are increasingly unreliable and unusable together.

Lightning Bug Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Lightning, I downgrade thee to 1 *

So, I was forced to upgrade to the latest version of Lightning because as is so typical with Mozilla products, something that had been working just fine for quite a long time quit working for absolutely no logical reason.(I've been a Linux user for too many years but every year as Linux distros and Linux apps continue to suck more and more, I'm afraid I am going to have to go back to Microslop so I can quit wasting my time fudging with my computer and get MY REAL WORK done).

So, I update Lightning, fine. Now I am trying to create an event on my calendar that starts at 1300 and ends at 1430. So I enter 1300 in the starting time field and Lightning fills in 2:00 PM in the ending time field. I then change to the ending time field, and enter 1430 in the ending time field, and Lightnining changes the starting time field to from 1:00 PM to 1:30 PM. What the heck? I try again, enter 1300 in the starting time field, and it changes the ending time field from 2:30 PM to 2:00 PM. Argh!!!!!! What in the bloody ell is going on? Has some sort of strange new physics arisen in which all events in life must begin and end within exactly one hour?

Long story short, after i resort to the usual G-search for "mozilla thunderbird bug" and "cannot set time more 1 hour", I'm directed to the URL shown below which explains that the new feature, er, bug has an obvious and easy fix.

Now, I've been using Lightning over 5 years, and I don't remember the little "chain link" symbol being in the linked state by default. I've been putting events on my calendar for years without this bug every happening. I am pretty certain this was not the default behavior in prior versions of Lightning, because if it was, then I would have been writing this rant several years ago and I can assure you that today is indeed "now" and not "many years ago."

So, what sort of illogical mindset would consider that setting the chain link symbol to the linked state by default is logical? Its not. Logical. At. All. I would venture to guess that considering all of the events that are set everyday, worldwide, that the majority of them are not exactly one hour in length.
Seriously, how could you possible consider something that is so illogical to be logical. And why would you change it the new release since that breaks the default behavior that long-term users have come to rely upon. Break the frickin link Mozilla Please, for the love of humanity, set the default behavior to be "unlinked".

Why Mozilla, why? Why, why why (holding head in hands, sobbing, tears running onto keyboard, fumbling around on desktop muttering, "Where did I leave that Win 7 disk...?"

Humanity is doomed.

BTW: Here is the link to the bug fix.

I'm sorry this is causing you trouble and thanks for taking the time to write a review. I am not aware that we changed the default there, are you sure you didn't accidentally click the chain icon some time? The setting persists when the event dialog is reopened.

date/time picker changed in latest version Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The date/time picker changed in the latest version, and it's for the worst.

There is no more small calendar, only an edit box to type the date and time.

What a usability downgrade!!!

Would like to see a workable date/time picker back please!

Can you contact support about this or file a bug? We didn't remove the calendar from the datepicker, if it is not appearing for you it must be a bug.

Good luck! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have used TB and Lighting for a very long time. I'm happy, though sometimes it's not all right. Thank you to developers and I wish you a lot of luck in solving "I want it for free and immediately" requirements :)

Kubuntu 16.10 + TB 52.1.1 (64-Bit) + Lightning 5.4 No Date Time Popups Rated 4 out of 5 stars

All software latest versions. It all seems to work except that there are no more date time popups when entering or editing an event.

Since a few months back, the core functions of lightning have been broken for me Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Since a few months ago, the Calendar and Tasks menu items under view have been greyed out when I have lightning installed. As a result, I can only see my events in the sidebar view, not as part of a broader calendar. I've updated thunderbird to the latest version, disabled and re-enabled lightning, removed and reinstalled lightning, and nothing has helped. I would like to rate it higher, because for quite some time it did what I needed it to do- but lacking a functional calendar view as such means the addon isn't what I need it to be.

Massa krångel Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Cannot Import CSV Files Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Lightning 5.4 will not import CSV files into Thunderbird 52. I encountered the most verbose and incomprehensible error message ever.

As a test, I manually created some events in Lightning and then exported them as a CSV file. When I deleted the calendar and then tried to re-import the saved CSV file, Lightning would not even import the file it just created!

Had to roll back to TBird 45.8 and Lightning 4.7.8. All is well once again.

This site claims that Lightning 5.4 works with Thunderbird 52.0, but in practice, they do not seem to play well together yet. More work needed.

bug Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I've been using lightning for many years now. It is a very nice extension however since few versions the stability of the module is very bad.
I have several calendars but some part of calendars did not appear in thunderbird even after sync....
it is boring
I don't know why but sometimes it works fine and sometimes it bugged
