Not sure if this was intensional but the task list is no longer displayed in the "today" pane, along with the mini-month calendar. The top events are still there. If intensional, please bring it back.

Used to be great but no longer can 'snooze' or 'dismiss' reminders Rated 2 out of 5 stars

When Lightning worked, it was great and I couldn't recommend it highly enough! It's easy to use, powerful, and has a small footprint.

Unfortunately, about 2 weeks ago (and seemingly out of the blue) the ability to 'snooze' and 'dismiss' reminders simply disappeared. If I click on either option when a reminder pops up, I now get an error message that says, "An error occurred when writing to the calendar Home!" When I click on 'details' it says "MODIFICATION_FAILED"

I have seen others who have posted about this same issue in the MozillaZine forums but have not come across a solution yet.

You can change/add/delete categories by going to:
Tools (menu) > Preferences > Lightning (tab) > Categories (tab).

Categories Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I am still looking for the "Edit Categories List" feature. The list is lame and useless for my needs. I'm looking for Edit, Delete, Add. Is there a manual way to perform this operation?

I can't live without this add-on any more. 0.9rc1 is close to perfection.

Any idea if Lightning will be available for Thunderbird 3 by the beta 1 release? (I'm loving shredder, but can't stand to lose this functionality just for some bug fixes and better GTK integration!)

Thunderbird + Lightning 0.8 has a Daylight savings problem Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi, Just notifying people of a bug they may encounter with Thunderbird + Lightning 0.8. At first I wondered if there was a problem with our calendar server (Davical 0.9.5.1), however it looks like it was almost certainly a bug in the lightning plugin.

I installed Thunderbird Lightning 0.8 on my PC and the times for calendar events were messed up for a period about 3 weeks after daylight savings (oct 5 2008 in australia). "messed up" .. to be more precise, the morning events (at 9am) were shifted forward an hour. The problem occurs on PC, Mac, and Linux.

Installing the pre release version of lightning 0.9rc1 fixed the bug, so looks like it had nothing to do with davical calendar server.

-- Summary --

Program : Thunderbird + Lightning 0.8 plugin
OS : PC, Mac, and Linux
Server: Davical calendar server v0.9.5.1 [according to synaptic] on Ubuntu Linux
Bug : morning calendar events shifted forward an hour for 3 weeks after daylight savings (my timezone is Australia/Sydney). Problem occurs in date range from about Oct 5 to Oct 26.
Fix : Install the pre release version of lightning 0.9rc1 from here: http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/calendar/lightning/releases/0.9rc1/

I have managed to get it here... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome add-on. It changed my Thunderbird for good :) ...

I was not able to download this sucessfully and I have managed to get it off of ftp site: here is the link:
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/addons/2313/?C=S;O=A

I have picked this version:

lightning-0.8-tb-win.xpi

It is about 2MB and everything works fine. The first un-successfull try was worth only 611 bytes :)

I hope you see this...

PS. Author - keep up the good work... we need more of these around here :)

First Impressions Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great Add-On which I am finding very useful and which has much potential.
A couple of things which I thought might make things even better!

1. The ability to delete all future or all past instances of a repeating event rather than the "this occurrence" or "all occurrences" as offered at present. For example - being able to delete only the future occurrences leaves the past occurrences in tact as a useful record of those events.

2. Clicking on an event launching a link to the details of a contact in the address book or a dialogue to initiate and email or telephone call to a set individual or group of individuals.

Very nice program, easy to use and so on.
But, there are some things, that I don't like:

There is no link from activities to calendar. Activities, which have to be completed soon - could be shown in calendar (not - copied to, but shown).

I could not see easy way of sharing data from my work computer to home (should be OS independent). Also export/backup could be done that way.

Also, there could be more listings or profiles (private/job/entertainment etc.)

And... If thunderbird is not working, there could be some agent in tray with less memory consumption, which triggers out alarms. :)

Wouldn't work on Vista 64 bit Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not really a review because it wouldn't load! I downloaded the file but it refused to run - I can only assume it isn't compatible with Vista 64 bit OP

GREAT but need a "year" icon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

great - but would like to see an icon where you can see the whole year, or 6 months either side of the current date, or the next 12 months from the current date. Would not have to show events but at least the months and dates.

Microsoft Outlook Killer Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Everything you need to replace the bloated Microsoft Outlook. Calendar, Tasking, Scheduling - everything is stable and with the GDate extension syncing to Google Calendar is a snap.

One less application to open Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Easy to use - now I don't have to have Outlook open.

One problem: I set my timezone to eastern time (America/New York) yet the Reminder/alarm pops up 4 hours early.
